Light, one of the cornerstones of vitality; When evaluated in terms of flux value, spectrum and duration of action, it creates an important area of examination on the compatibility of living conditions.

When this situation is examined for poultry, it is noticed that there are multifaceted effects of changes in the physical quantities of light.
