Finished putting the light fittings into the remaining breeding cages and I’m really impressed with the results. It’s like Blackpool illuminations in there now. The main lighting comes on @ 5:30am using a Sun5, which brings four 40 watts bulbs up from dim to full brightness, it then switches over to the fluorescents and dims the 40 watt bulbs before switching them off, @ 7:00am the cage lights turn on. All this is then reversed @ 8:30 when the 40 watt bulbs are switched on and the fluorescents are switched off, the bulbs then go through a dimming process during the next 30 minutes and the cage lights go off @ 08:45. Once everything is dimmed to darkness, a night light takes over to reduce night fright, allowing any birds sufficient light to return to the perch. The whole process is fully automated and the times are adjusted to suit the required conditions.
