Questions & Answers

I was reading a question and it said burn in and after burn distance. What does that mean? I understand how to place it I just don't get what burn in and after burn mean
Answer by ChewyMar 26, 2018
The term burn in is similar to when breaking in a new pair of shoe, once used you can move the the light closer to the cage.

How far away from the cage does this light need to be? Can it benefit the bird from 6 feet away and does it have to be uncovered by a lampshade?
Answer by ChewyAug 16, 2017
The recommended distance during burn-in is 18-20 inches and after burn-in is 12-14 inches. The lamp should be placed directly overhead of your bird. The compact fluorescent bulb is self-ballasted so you can use it in most fixtures and uses 26 watts of power.

Can you use any kind of lighting fixture? Or do you need a specific kind to use with this light bulb?
Answer by ChewyAug 25, 2017
This compact fluorescent bulb provides a balanced light spectrum and is self-ballasted so you can use it in most fixtures, either indoors or outdoors.

Does this bulb fit in the Zoo Med Avian Sun Deluxe Floor Lamp??
Answer by ChewyMay 19, 2018
The product does fit in the Zoo Med Avian Sun Deluxe Floor Lamp.

Great light!

I use these for my parrot's sun lamp. They last a long time, unfortunately, I knocked over the lamp and had to replace the bulb! It has full spectrum light -good for the birds.

Avian UV light

If you can't take your birds outside in the sunshine, this light brings the sun indoors.

Avian (Sunshine) lighting

Just what the Dr. ordered!!! Especially during the winter months. Don't get much sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest this time of year. So to make sure my birdie buddy stays healthy with strong bones and beautiful feathers she still is able to get her 10 hours of "sunshine" every day. And she stays healthy and looks beautiful!!!

Zoo Med Avian Sun 5.0 UVB Bulb

This avian bulb is very good. I use it with the Zoo Med standing lamp which I also wrote a review. Both products are very good. Thanks Zoo Med!

Awesome, awesome, awesome

I was told to get this for my prairie dog who was having issues. He needed sunlight basically without having the heat of the Sun from outside. This artificial sunlight is helping so much and has increased his movements and made him a lot happier.

Keeps your indoor parrots and birds healthy!

Your indoor parrots and birds need these lamps replaced every year to make vitamin D that they would normally get from the sun. My middle age parrots were starting to have health issues. I read an article on their need for direct sunlight not just light coming through a window. Using these lamps for 6 hours per day takes care of this need. If you cannot remember to turn them on, it is best to put them on a timer so they are on and off at the same time every day. Follow the location and burn in instructions when you set them up. Put the future date for replacement on you calendar and replace every year. Your parrots and birds will enjoy better health.

Everyone is happy

In the northern states winter is long and there are a lot of gray days. The avian sun provides for more sunlight and makes my bird happy and healthy.
