My rooster is eating wild mushrooms in my yard. I'm hoping he can tell the good ones from the poisonous ones. If he ate a poisonous mushroom, would he start hallucinating? Some mushrooms are hallucinogenic. I can see the picture: my rooster, eyes wide open, hallucinating. Would be interesting to see.
I would identify those mushrooms pronto, some wild mushrooms are way too delicious to waste on a rooster.

My rooster finally died. I don't know what killed it: the stress of transportation when I bought him or the mushrooms or polysterene from my garden or the stress from being chased by a predator. My rooster spent the night out of the coop one night. He was somewhat ragged the next day. Who knows what happened during that night... In addition, he apparently got a taste for styrofoam. I wonder if he died of constipation related to eating it?
