Take a look at this, it says that female japanese quails prefer the male that loses in a fight?

funny that ... read the article before scrolling down ..... thinking yep, that makes a lot of sense, if i was an experienced lady quail I'd want a less aggressive wussy mate, lessens the chance of being scalped if he can't get his wicked way lol Smile

This research make no sense, if carried out to its final conclusion with the female quail picking the weakest male at each mating then after a few generations the weakened genetic makeup will show as infetile or unhatched eggs. A female quail does not have the foresight to pick a less agressive male to prevent harm to herself. I feel the key word in this research is "sham" , the research is based on quail in a sham fight and yet they believe the results are credible about quail behaviour. Nature is all about the survival of the fittest/strongest and always will be, anything else becomes food for other animals.
