Timer Operation

The Rooster Booster has been designed to use two automatic time settings: 9-hours Night and 12-hours Day. When combined with natural daylight and darkness the hens are provided with a 15-hour day. When the daylight exceed 12-hours, the timer will not switch to its night mode until the sensor detects dark, ensuring the hens have a rest period in the summer months when daylight exceeds 15-hours.

Please use this timing chart as a guide.
