Lights for chickens in the winter
Day length is important to a hens egg production. As winter approaches and the days start to shorten, egg production will reduce or even stop! To overcome this artificial lighting is provided for the chickens
Rooster Booster poultry lighting is ideal for free range chickens houses where mains electricity is not available. Connected to a 12-volt battery, the rooster booster will provide light throughout the winter months, making it viable to keep hens in more remote areas.
Monitoring the 24-hour pattern of natural light and dark, the Rooster Booster timer adjusts it self so that it only comes on when it is dark in a 15 hour period thus maximising time between battery charges and ensuring that the free range chickens enjoy the benefits of natural daylight. At the end of the day after a short dimming time, a night period of 9 hours begins. No lighting is provided during this time allowing the hens to roost.
There are two lighting systems to suit the size of you chicken house
The Rooster Booster Standard
Providing poultry lighting in small chicken houses of
3 or more laying hens is possible with the Rooster Booster Standard.
