Abstract

In this report an overview is given of the technical knowledge with regards to light. light sources and the vision of poultry. Recent developments in lighting of poultry houses are mainly focused on new light sources, specifically LED, and the presence of daylight. Daylight comprises UV, which for poultry is a visual part of the spectrum. Chickens also see better in the red and green-blue spectrum. Technically it is possible to make lamps in the desired spectrum, but there is insufficient knowledge of the demands of the bird to be able to tune the lamps to their needs.
