Relationships among glucose tolerance, plasma insulin, and plasma glucagon were examined in chicks developed through selection for high (HW) and low (LW) body weight,

and in F1 crosses (HL) between HW males and LW females. At

21, 42, 63, and 84 days of age, chicks from each population

were intubated with glucose (2 g/kg body weight) following a

24-hr fast. Blood was collected at 20 minute intervals up

to 100 minutes post administration.
