Brood reduction in birds is frequently associated with hatching asynchrony, wherein incubation commences before clutch completion, causing last-laid eggs to hatch after earlier eggs. In crested penguins (Eudyptes spp.), second-laid eggs typically hatch before first-laid eggs, but the mechanisms behind this reversal are unknown. Through a multifactor field experiment with rockhopper penguins (Eudyptes chrysocome Forster 1781), I examined several factors that might influence incubation length… CONTINUE READING
