  • Abstract The probability of starvation of chicks increases through hatching order in broods of the coot, Fulica atra. After hatching chicks accompany, and are fed by, parents as they swim around the territory. The time that chicks are able to spend outside the nest increases rapidly with age, so that the earlier hatching chicks gain a feeding advantage over the later. Starvation of chicks occurs within 4–5 days of hatching. Even after this initial mortality there persist large differences in… CONTINUE READING
