Bring the sun indoors for your bird pals with the Zoo Med Avian Sun Compact Fluorescent Bird Lamp. This lamp is specially designed to provide beneficial UVA and UVB―the full spectrum of natural sunlight that birds need to thrive and stay healthy, both physically and psychologically. Birds need UVB to make vitamin D3 which is essential for growth, overall health, and reproduction, and they use UVA to see colors, recognize mates, locate food, and identify different species. 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.
Provides beneficial UVA and UVB light that birds need for overall health and wellbeing.
UVB is needed for birds to make vitamin D3 for normal growth and development, and reproduction.
Birds use UVA to see colors, which benefits psychological health in your feathered pal.
The compact fluorescent bulb is self-ballasted so you can use it in most fixtures and uses 26 watts of power.
Easy to set up both indoors and outdoors, and requires no assembly or extra converters to use.
Your lamp will provide beneficial UVA and UVB for a period of 12 months. After 12 months, the lamp should be replaced with a new AvianSun 5.0 UVB Compact Fluorescent Lamp. Before you turn your lamp on for the first time, date the base of the lamp to remind yourself when to replace it.
In my current apartment there’s no way I can take my birds out in the sun and I started noticing their depression. I’ve had this up for only a week and they’re singing more and growing new feathers already. Definitely a good buy

I have never used one of these before. The one I ordered, was for the new/used cage. I put this in my bird room . The next day, my Grey was once again smelling like Fruit Loops ® So I ordered another one for the cage!
Happy and Bright

I recently purchased this light for my conure's cage as the cage is located in a very dim location in my house. She was having problems with what seemed like depression to me and the doc said she needed a full spectrum light on her cage. She was missing out on Vit. D. Since I have installed the lamp the turn around in Kahlo is wonderful!! The only problem was that I could not find the lamp stand that goes with the bulb. I ended rigging something up and it does the trick, but I wish that I could have purchased the matching floor lamp for the bulb from Chewy also.

This bulb must be above cage. It cannot be alongside of it, in a standing lamp, even when the shade is adjustable. It can't be where the bird looks directly at it. My cage is 6 ft. high.
I wasted twenty dollars on this bulb, as it is of no use to me.
You basically have to purchase the adjustable lamp that the manufacturer sells.
Chewy’s is the best !!

They always get my orders to me fast and always accurate. This bulb is one of many items I buy every month from them.
Fantastic service and product!

I'm thrilled with this light! Each bird has their own and get to experience this light all day. I turn them on first thing in the morning and off for the night. Highly recommend this for your bird and his or her health!
Be sure to angle it where people are not looking directly at the bulb. While these are very beneficial for your bird, I have read they can be harmful to the human eye. That's why I use the zoo med floor lamps and angle these over top each cage. The light stays focused on the birds area.
Must have for birds that don't get natural light

My birds love it. I've seen a difference in my African grey feathers..
