Abstract:
The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of different LED monochromatic light (green, λ= 560nm; blue, λ= 480nm; red, λ= 660nm) on breast and thigh muscle fibre diameter of broiler chicken in comparison with white LED light and incandescent bulb light. Muscle fibre diameter of breast and thigh muscle of 17, 24 and 31 day old broiler chicks was assessed. The study showed that on day 17, the birds reared under green and blue light had a better breast and thigh muscle fibre diameter. On day 24 and 31, birds reared under blue light showed a better breast and thigh muscle fibre diameter than others. The study revealed that blue and green monochromatic LED light is better for the breast and thigh muscle fibre development of broiler chicken than other lights used.
