Your bird is your sunshine, but is he getting enough sunshine? The Avian Sun 5.0 UVB Compact Fluorescent Bulb is a full spectrum light bulb for birds that provides both UVB and UVA. Promotes both physical and psychological health.
UVB is necessary for birds to synthesize vitamin D3 for proper calcium metabolism which is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones, and egg production. UVA allows birds to recognize mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are essentially colorblind.
Full-spectrum lighting helps prepare your bird for seasonal changes. It also strengthens your bird's immune system, simulates a bird's natural habitat, and maintains a constant cage temperature. This bulb is compatible with the Avian Sun Deluxe Floor Lamp
