Abstract: The purpose of the present experiments was to compare the effects of the intermittent lighting schedule (IL) consisting of repeated cycles of 1 h light (L):3 h darkness (D) with a nearly continuous lighting schedule 23L:1D (CL) on the performance of floor-reared male and female broiler chickens. In addition, N balance trials were performed on caged broilers in order to assess their efficiency of dietary N retention.
