Why Full-Spectrum Lighting? Breeders know that the length of the day influences mating and egg-laying activity and they often provide artificial lighting to improve reproductive performance. Recent studies have shown that while most artificial light provides a poor substitute for sunlight, some fluorescent lights, particularly full-spectrum lights, do provide many of the stimulation and health benefits of unfiltered sunlight. It is known that birds synthesize vitamin D3 on their skin in the presence of ultraviolet radiation (UV) from sunlight or full-spectrum artificial lighting. This vitamin is essential in the metabolism of calcium. Calcium cannot be absorbed by the intestines nor can the bird's blood level be regulated without the presence of D3. Since we cannot depend only on diet to provide sufficient D3, UV light is essential to full calcium utilization.
