Abstract: This research had the objective of developing a model which describes the way that a flock of broilers from 17 to 24 days old walked in the region around the feeder, for better understanding their feeding behavior. The model takes into consideration the area occupied by the birds, their age and environmental variables such as ambient temperature, relative humidity and light intensity. Results showed that almost all variables contribute to reducing the movement, except the illuminance, but the ambient temperature is the one that mostly affect the response variable which was the movement of the birds, followed by age, relative humidity and the amount of area occupied by the broilers.
