38 eggs are found in the nest
It takes ~ 20 days for the young roadrunners to face the hot sun.
The chicks leave after about 18 days.
Science Biology online education: roadrunners are often seen birds on Texas caliche roads

Geococcyx californianus abandon their chicks after a few weeks
Roadrunners catch and eat rattlesnakes,
insects, scorpions, lizards, other snakes,
rodents and other birds.
They have been seen hunting together and share the food.
During the winter the roadrunner adds plant material when other animals become scarce.
They can run up to 20 mph.
Another name is Chaparral Cock.
Roadrunners can live with small amounts of water, because they absorb water from their intestines.
Unusual also the a nasal gland that removes salt from their bloodstream.
