Rooster eating mushrooms

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?

oh darn...that is a sad way for a rooster to go.
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
