Lights

The lights in a poultry house are an important element to raising healthy and high performing flocks. Proper light intensity will ensure birds are active and seek out food and water. It is beneficial to give turkeys a dark period to reduce aggressiveness and improve overall performance.

We recommend a minimum light intensity of 60 lux. For information on suggested hours of darkness please click on the info graphic below.
