I want to compare the mean eggs laid per female in two different experiments. The first experiment(control) consist of one females laying eggs in a "box". The second experiement (test) consist of two females laying eggs in the same box. In both experiement, I count the eggs in each box regardless of who laid the eggs.
My results are :
Control females : 1,13 ± 0,35 eggs per female. (n=319)
Test females: 2,07 ± 0,57 eggs for TWO FEMALES. (n=378)
How can I calculate the mean ± SE for each female, in the second experiement, in order to compare the females of both experiments?
