Many authors1,2,3,4) could not apply the glucostatic regulation theory to the control of feeding behavior in chickens. Though, dirnal variation of blood glucose or glucose utilization broadly coincides with that of feeding behavior5,6,7), and the acceleration of insulin secretion is necessary for maintaining the accerelation of food intake in the hypothalamic hyperphagic chickens8). Then, a possibility has not been discarded that variation of blood glucose can affect feeding behavior or the
