Artificial Lighting for Indoor Birds
I have a game bird that is kept strictly indoors, except for dust baths outside in the summer time. We also have a cockatiel in the same situation. I will also be getting finches in the near future, which will be kept indoors. What kind of artificial lighting would you recommend for them?
I found the Avian Sun floor lamp and the fluorescent full spectrum bulb on your website. Would you recommend these or something else? Also, I read in an article that 2 long bulbs are required in order to fulfill their light needs. Is this true?? Or does it depend on the watts and K of the bulb?
I know that good lighting is important for several reasons and that they should not live without it... I am just uneducated as to what to choose. HELP!!! I want to make the right decision, for my feathered companions.
