  • Quail Density: Line- transect- flush counts were conducted on horseback in the fall ( October) to estimate bobwhite density prior to hunting season and in the spring { March) to estimate post- hunting density. (ok.gov)
  • Bobwhite densities averaged about I quail/ 2 acres in the fall and 1 quail/ 15 acres in the spring for the 2 study areas. (ok.gov)
  • Quail Mortality: To evaluate bobwhite mortality, radio telemetry was used to monitor activity of the birds on the study areas. (ok.gov)
  • The chicken brain is more than twice as big as the bobwhite quail brain in adulthood. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • These data indicate that chickens have a larger brain than bobwhite quail mainly because of species differences in cell cycle rates during early stages of embryonic development. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Boire & Baron 1994 ) even though the normal incubation time of chickens is shorter than that of bobwhite quail (21 versus 23 days at the same incubation temperature). (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • In search of an alternative explanation for the observation that hatchling chickens have larger brains than hatchling quail, we examined the timing of neural events (i.e. neurogenesis onset, maturational milestones) and cell cycle rates in the brains of embryonic chickens and bobwhite quail.
