The benefits of UVA and UVB for your bird are now greatly understood. Specialised retinas enable your bird to see UVA and providing your bird with an avian lamp ensures they are no longer deprived of the full colour spectrum they would naturally see. This in turn means your bird is no longer colour blind - unlock their world and let your bird see it in full colour!
UVA is also essential for the psychological health of your bird. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours.
Correct level of UVB allows your bird to synthesise 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.
