The article discusses the influence of light pulsation on the physiological state of humans and birds, some aspects of its occurrence, the main characteristics and the alleged role in the deterioration of chickens’ zootechnical indicators under the conditions of using light sources with light flux pulsations of different frequencies. The current state of lighting equipment in poultry farming is characterized by the rapid development of technologies and the active introduction of LED lighting. Having undeniable advantages, LED lighting systems have some technical features that are currently insufficiently studied and can affect the zootechnical indicators of poultry. A clear definition of the threshold values of the characteristics of the pulsation of illumination in the poultry house will make it possible to produce lighting equipment for poultry farming with a safe value of the pulsations of the luminous flux of light sources in their composition. The analysis of numerous literature sources has shown that the influence of light pulsation on the physiological state of humans and zootechnical indicators in birds is associated with a complex effect, depending on such characteristics as the depth and frequency of the pulsation of the light flux of light sources. Despite some differences in the values of the threshold impact of light pulsation, the nature of its impact is similar in humans and birds, which allows us to develop and apply targeted measures to reduce the impact of light pulsation on poultry and the deterioration of its zootechnical indicators.
