There are also many techniques for raising chickens, such as red, green and blue light, which have certain adverse effects on the physiological function and growth of chickens. However, in the breeding process of chickens, this problem has long been ignored by people, causing losses to chicken farms. So what is the impact of light on raising chicken?
First, red light
Red light has the effect of inhibiting growth rate and delaying sexual maturity in chicks and young chickens at the growth stage. Therefore, chicks and young chickens should be prohibited from using red lighting. Green light has an inhibitory effect on the laying performance of adult hens, which can reduce the egg production rate, so laying hens and hens should not be illuminated with green light.
Blue light can easily induce chicken mites, reduce the disease resistance of chickens of all ages, and reduce the egg production rate of adult hens. Therefore, chickens should not be illuminated with blue light throughout their lives.
Fourth, yellow light
Huang Guang can reduce the egg production rate of adult hens, and the hens can reduce the fertilization rate. Therefore, laying hens and breeding hens should be prohibited from lighting with yellow light. Yellow light can also induce chicken mites, so chickens of all ages should not be illuminated with yellow light.
