Table S1 A sample of published studies on extra-pair paternity (EPP) showing the range in the percentage of genotyped extra-pair young (EPY) that were assigned a sire (% EPY sires), the percentage of all chicks that were EPY (% EPY) and the total number of chicks sampled (n).

Table S2 Published studies on socially monogamous species that report unpaired or floater males gaining extra-pair copulations (EPC) or young (EPY).

Table S3 Characteristics of the microsatellite loci used in this study: the annealing temperature (Ta) for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), the number of alleles per locus, the number of individuals genotyped at each locus (n), observed (Ho) and expected (He) heterozygosity, the frequency of null alleles estimated from CERVUS (F(null)), and the mean per allele error rate estimated from the Bayesian analysis for 1993–1996 (showing the allelic dropout rate E1 and the false allele rate E2).

Table S4 Differences in paternity assignment between Maximum Likelihood (ML), Maximum Likelihood & heuristic ecology (MLHE) and Bayesian methods, showing the 34 chicks for which the assigned sire differed between analyses.

Table S5 The proportion of chicks assigned at each level of confidence using 6 compared to 13 loci for both the ML and Bayesian analysis.
