INTRODUCTION The influence of light is a resultant of period, intensity, and colour and wattage power of the lamp. Classen and Riddell, 1989 [4] suggested that birds exposed to increasing photoperiod appeared to be more active.

Many farmers do not master the Photoperiod and the light intensity. The bad system of light intensity will affect the production and the egg weight. Every time, the Technician visits the layer farms, he has to measure the lux and discuss the photoperiod with the owner. It is good to weight the eggs and compare them with the standard. Those who have the Grading Machine will know the production of each category of eggs. The article above is a good reference for farmers and technicians.
