“(Japanese) farmers have already begun installing LEDs at their facilities because the energy-efficient lights help reduce electricity bills, but the center also found they can prevent aggressive behavior among chickens…researchers found that roosters raised under yellow LEDs consumed the least amount of food but still grew the most during the test period…no signs of aggressive behavior were detected when yellow LEDs were used.”
