no idea really rog, I suppose the most important thing would be the water, rather than food....so I`d guess at around a week, dependant on weather conditions, dehydration .

Would not have thought there was over 3,500 matters relative to water, you learn something every day.

Nature and survival is a mystery, including, humans, I bet there are stories of survival that would make your hair curl {if you have any left) .

Would not hazard a guess without knowing all the circumstances.

I was taught a lesson thou, I had a silver gift hen that both bred winners and won every show she went in, 1966 pigeon.

A fancier kept wanting me to let him have and had it not been a gift bird I maybe would have.

It went missing and at that time there was very little problems around the lofts which were on the open loft.

I immediately put my suspicious hat on and thought my friend had a hand in it.

Some months later I had the chimney swept and a pigeons body came down, the 66 hen., ring intact.

Lesson well learned.

Regards.
