The Rooster Booster poultry lamp and timer system is designed for poultry keepers who want to keep their hens laying during the winter months, but do not have access to mains powered lighting. Powered by a 12-volt battery, the Rooster Booster monitors the 24-hour pattern of natural light and dark, and its timer adjusts itself so that it only comes on when it is dark during a 15 hour 'day' period, in two short lighting periods at the beginning and end of natural daylight. At the end of the 'day', the lamp will dim before a night period of 9 hours in which no artificial light is provided, thus allowing the hens their important roosting time.
There are two systems: the Standard which is suitable for 3 - 50 hens, and the Multi-Lamp which will provide enough light for up to 250 hens.
