Natural light is essential for flock health. In order to comply with animal welfare standards, you will need to make provisions to ensure there is plenty of natural light. Replacing ageing windows with uPVC windows is one of the best ways to ensure your birds are given plenty of natural light. In the winter months, artificial lighting can be used to supplement daylight hours.
Like humans, birds thrive when they can adjust to a day and night cycle. Birds that experience day and night are more active and grow faster. This makes it a simple way to improve flock health and profitability as a result.
