THE IMPORTANCE OF FULL SPECTRUM LIGHTING for BIRDS

FULL SPECTRUM - 6500k BULB - $ 14.99
Draws 23 watts gives 100watts of light


FULL SPECTRUM - 6500k bulb - $13.99
Draws 18 watts gives 75 watts of light

One of the most commonly asked questions by birdkeepers about cage lighting concerns the effective and proper usage of full spectrum (or FS) lighting devices. Only a kelvin rating of 6500k will give the desired effect. The lower kelvin rating of 5500 as found in low voltage and energy saving bulbs will NOT have the desired benefit of 6500k full spectrum lights. Birds and reptiles have completely different illumination and dietary requirements; it is an error to translate the application of lighting for reptiles to practice with birds. The quality of this full-spectrum light is unsurpassed, and reasonably priced. Fits into practically any fixture, and is economical to operate. Delivers approximately 100 watts of light, and draws only 23 watts of power. It effectively lasts 10,000 hours, or the bulb-life of ten conventional light bulbs. Full-Spectrum light is necessary for the proper utilization of calcium. FULL SPECTRUM SUNLIGHT DOES NOT PASS THROUGH WINDOW GLASS OR PLASTIC, SO IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW CLOSE YOU PLACE THE CAGE FOR YOUR BIRD TO ANY WINDOW. Unless a pet bird spends time daily in direct sunlight -- OR IS ILLUMINATED WITH A 6500k full spectrum bulb -- birds can develop serious deficiencies. The real effect of lighting upon general health, new molt, feather appearance, and behaviors is brought about by a balanced avian visual spectrum.  Supplement artificial lighting whenever possible with natural unfiltered sunlight, and feed a high quality balanced diet.  This combination of factors will meet all of your bird’s requirements for lighting and nutrition.
