All models contain the base effects of quadratic chick age and hen age. Models were evaluated using the Quasi-Akaike's Information Criterion (QAIC). K = number of parameters. wi = model weight (i.e. the likelihood of a particular model being the best model). R-score = percent reduction of deviance relative to the base model (Quadratic Chick Age+Hen Age). The saturated model contains effects for site (1 parameter) and each year (7 parameters). Typically 8 parameters would be required to model the effects of 9 years. However, because years did not overlap between the 2 sites we were able to fully specify year effects with only 7 parameters.
