Females do best if they wait a while

uch a high mortality rate when attempting to breed is that they are not in as good condition as older females. Because breeding female woodhoopoes lay all the eggs and conduct all the incubation, they pay a potentially high cost.

This is exacerbated because in incubating the eggs overnight, the breeding female sleeps alone, while the rest of the group roost communally; she therefore suffers a potential thermoregulatory cost in addition to the costs associated with laying and incubation. If young females are in poorer condition than older females, they will be more likely to die as a consequence of these costs.
