    Help! Two of my 5 month old Faverolles were spitting up a clear liquid today. I had just gave them some fresh water and whenever I do that, they start drinking for a couple of minutes, non-stop (are they just weird, or is that normal). Some of the other articles that I've read say that they "throw up" after they drink too much water, and that it will stop after a day or so. Any suggestions on what to do?

    Yep, and they'll also do it if you pick em up right after they've had a drink. I've been spit up on by my birds more times than I can count. Some birds just get a little overeager while drinking. It doesn't hurt them.

    Thanks for your reply! Yeah, I picked up one just now after it had a drink and it spit up all over my shirt :) When I set it down, she walked away like nothing had happened and seemed fine after that. I'll keep an eye on them, though.
