Which was first to evolve, red eyes or fin stripes?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a ecology multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.1. Lori, a chicken farmer in the upper Midwest, is interested in breeding hens that lay more eggs. Her hens lay on average 4.2 eggs per week, but some lay more. She chooses her top egg-layers to breed. These hens lay on average 5.6 eggs per week. The offspring of those hens lay an average of 4.6 eggs per week. What is the heritability of egg laying?Lori’s neighbor Sheryl brags that while her hens also lay on average 4.2 eggs per week, she has some super hens that produce 7.8 eggs per week. Using Lori’s measure of heritability, how many eggs per week would the offspring of these super layers produce? Show all your work and clearly label your answers.2. Consider the attached image. Four species of fish evolved from a common ancestor with no convergence or reversal. Your task is to reconstruct the evolutionary relationships and label all character transitions (you will have 5 character transitions) then answer the following question: Which was first to evolve, red eyes or fin stripes? Explain your answer and show all work. (refer to table figure 2)3. You are constructing a phylogeny for Illinois woodpecker species. You collect mitochondrial DNA sequence data from five species, as shown in the table. For your outgroup, you sequence an Acorn Woodpecker, a species you assume is more distantly related to the others. Using parsimony, construct the tree that requires the fewest number of mutations to explain the data that you have. Indicate your inferred ancestral sequence and where each mutation occurs on your tree. (refer to table 3)
