Fluorescent tube lights and compact bird lamps provide the correct levels of UVA and UVB which improves your Parrot’s health, appetite, feather condition and more. Use with specially designed holders, reflectors and stands to increase efficiency.
Parrot and bird Lights are important to provide the correct levels of UVB which allows your bird to synthesise vitamin D3 in their skin, or through a special process involving the preening gland. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium metabolism. This is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.
Also your Parrot has specialised retinas which enables them to see UVA, helping them to recognise mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are colour blind. Bird lights unlock their world and let your bird see it in full colour!
UVA is essential for the psychological health of your bird. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours.
