It seems like they are not affected by fluorescent light frequency. I did not find anything about their visual sampling rate. Their hearing is between 0-200Hz with an average of 86Hz so I guess the visual sampling rate is under this, but that's just a guess.
We conclude that at the illumination levels used in this experiment,
the hens did not perceive the flicker of low-frequency light or they
perceived it but did not find it aversive. Low-frequency fluorescent
light does not appear to adversely affect the welfare of hens.

It concludes that there is no evidence that fluorescent or high
pressure sodium lighting, irrespective of intensity or spectral
distribution, has any consistent detrimental effect on growth, food
utilization, reproductive performance, mortality, behaviour or live
bird quality in either domestic fowl or turkeys, nor in the egg
production of geese.

A monochromatic (LED) light can be more beneficial according to this:
A significant reduction in egg production was observed in all 880nm
groups; no differences in egg production and quality were found in the
other groups. Feed consumption was significantly lower by 7% in all
0.01 W/m2 groups. We suggest that an important reduction in rearing costs of laying hens may be obtained by using this system.
