Arcadia Bird Cage Lamp Holder – 20W E27 Screw Fitting Compact Lamp – simply screw on the special bracket, add the light and you`re ready to go! Having a bird lamp in close proximity to the bird`s cage ensures they can really benefit from the UVA and UVB. The lamp (sold separately) provides birds with the full benefit of UV light.
Providing the correct levels of UVB allows the bird to synthesize 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.
Birds have specialised retinas that enable 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. Unlock their world and let them see it in full colour!
UVA is essential for the psychological health of birds. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviour.
Please Note: Made to be used with the Arcadia Pure Sun Compact Fluorescent Screw Fitting Bird Lamp . The unique holder helps keep the lead away from the cage but please exercise caution as with all electrical products.
