    worms? lice/mites?

    Without more information it is hard to even guess.

    What were they eating? How long had you had them? Were they in good weight when you got them? What did the poop look like? Die at the same time? Were they droopy or just dropped dead overnight? How well were they drinking? Has it been unusually warm?
