Monochromatic lighting for Poultry

      

Offering a range of colors, lighting solutions tailored for poultry can profoundly impact animal behavior and well-being. Unlike sunlight, which delivers a complete spectrum of colors, targeted lighting strategies allow precise control by emphasizing specific hues while eliminating unwanted ones. This nuanced approach, central to the concept of monochromatic lighting, mirrors its influence on humans by modifying poultry environments to enhance health, growth, and productivity. Gasolec has been at the forefront of implementing these specialized lighting solutions, demonstrating how carefully adjusted light environments can significantly benefit poultry farming, marking a significant evolution in the field of animal husbandry. 

Which colors of monochromatic lighting are suitable for which situation?

Since 1998 Gasolec has been offering three different monochromatic CFL (compact fluorescent lamps) in the colors green, blue and red. In addition, we also offer extra warm white lamps, a white color with an extra addition of red (2700K).

    

The green color will stimulate the muscle cells and the growth of the bones. Moreover, green light ensures more activity in the animals. Green light is most suitable for your poultry house when you want to raise chicks (rearing) or keep broilers.

The blue color ensures that the production of proteins is stimulated and that the muscle cells grow larger. Blue light also ensures that the animals are calmer, which results in a reducing amount of pecking. In addition, experience has taught us that laying hens prefer not to lay their eggs under blue light. Similar to green light, blue light is suitable for rearing chicks and for keeping broilers.

The red color stimulates the hypothalamus and thereby the reproductive process. The hypothalamus is very important in the control of the hormonal system and thus the reproductive process. Egg production is an essential part of this. In addition, experience has taught us that red light helps to prevent pecking problems. Red light is very suitable when poultry are kept for egg production or poultry breeding. When there are serious pecking problems with hens in layer houses, it is wiser to focus on a blue color spectrum.

    

The extra warm white color monochromatic lighting  

The extra warm white color (2700K) – which is white light with a relatively large proportion of red in the spectrum – is suitable for keeping poultry for egg production as well as for breeding poultry. A not unimportant factor here is that people generally experience extra warm light as a more pleasant color that allows them to perform better. Checking a poultry house is become more and more important and must be done faster and faster. This daily routine goes easier and faster with extra warm light than with monochromatic lighting. For this reason, we see a double lighting system in an increasing number of poultry houses: extra warm white light for when people are checking upon the animals and for a higher light intensity in a barn and more animal specific lighting (other colors) for the rest of the day.
