Data from: Coloration of chicks modulates costly interactions among family members

Judith Morales & Alberto Velando
The resolution of family conflicts over parental care involves elaborate behavioral interactions where signals and information exchange play a central role. Usually the focus is on offspring begging and adult signals and their effect on parental provisioning. Yet, despite offspring of many animal species display structural ornaments during parental dependency, their role in intra-family conflicts remains practically unexplored.
