Everything Asil Thread ( show off those Asil ) - Page 60
elephants, deer ,lions, rhinos, elephant seals among others including wild breeds of chickens do some times kill each other during breeding season. watch some nature shows, just because we don't see it doesn't mean it isn't happening!!! hate to point out the obvious but it happens in the wild folks and not just with chickens
I'm talking about leaving broods free range until they come of age. They go through one round of natural selection. The dumb, weak, and sickly don't make it. Then, when selected again, it is still natural selection. They are being selected by another asil, not a human. Another asil will spot weaknesses we can't. All that man has done is select the winners. This is why they are improved to the point that they are.
oh this I agree with. that would be the first selection, though, with man making the final selections
A male animal has a very short window of contribution for the survival of a species. Most are designed to challenge each other to ensure that only the strongest and healthiest pass on their genes. Some of them die in the process, freeing up resources for females and young. Sometimes they don't necessarily fight, there are animal species in which the male has decoration or bright colors that grab the attention of potential predators at the same time as potential mates. (Some find ways of showing their mating potential by racing fast cars or doing tricks on skateboards.)
In Hawaii, or Florida or anywhere that has a feral gamefowl population, remember there would always be young stags coming on, an old crippled cock or one that liked to run and hide, more than enough to do the breeding. And they are usually Bankiva games, the hens not getting along would probably make it hard for there to be a feral asil population.
