  1. Curvilinear models (including the square of hatching date or/and interaction with sex) and linear models (hatching date or/and interaction with sex) with the lowest AIC value are shown in the table. Covariates in the models are not shown in the body size analyses in this table. All models are shown in Additional file 1: Table S1, Additional file 2: Table S2, Additional file 3: Table S3, Additional file 4: Table S4
