I'm taking summer classes at a farm. We get parking lot donations where people just give us random animals, or really throw them into our parking lot. We got 3 roosters less then a week ago. Two austrolorps and one brown one, I can't remember what kind it was. Well, over the weekend I come in to train my sheep and there are supposed to be other kids from the class that come in to feed the animals. I came in this morning(I didn't come in at all yeasterday because I was to busy) and I ended up helping the student who was doing the feeding. towards the ending of feeding I decided to go feed the parking lot donation animals. It was just the 3 roos that I had to feed and water. Well the brown one was laying in the corner and I could tell he was dead. I called my teacher and he said to just throw him in the garbage can and we would talk about it on monday. I'm not sure how the little guy died though. They were young not fully grown so it couldn't of been age, he wasn't injured on the outside and so I higly doubt they fought, so he was either sick or he died of dehydration. Yesterday was extremely hot and their water and food dishes were bone dry. I think the kid who was supposed to feed them yesterday didn't. Is there anything else that could of happened? I just don't want any of the other roos to die over the weekend. When I go back to do my lamb training tonight I'll double check and make sure they have water. Do you think it could be a disease? Or do you think it was just dehydration? How long would it take a roo to die of dehydration in the 90's and 100's in a small cage with two other roos and no water?
