Arcadia Pure Sun Mini Bird Lamp
The Arcadia Bird ‘PureSun-Mini’ complete lighting system is an easy to use, modern and attractive Full-Spectrum + UV-B lighting kit.
PureSun-Mini has been designed by experts to be used with small to medium species of pet bird in the home. This attractive kit will not only help to provide energy within light naturally to your pet bird, but it will also allow you to view all of your birds’ colours.
Birds use the suns energy for warmth, to view the world in colour and to be able to make their own essential Vitamin D3. Having optimal levels of Vitamin D3 within the body will help to keep your pet bird in good health.
Vitamin D3, made within the body after exposure to UV-B enables a bird to assimilate, store and use essential minerals such as Calcium. If optimum levels of D3 are not stored in the body, essential minerals such as Calcium simply pass through unused. Having access to natural D3 will not only help to protect your bird’s brain, organ and muscle function but it will also help to greatly increase bone density, improve egg quality, reduce ‘soft-shell’, improve reproduction and maintain feather condition.
The Arcadia Bird PureSun-Mini lighting kit has been designed to be effective and simple to use. PureSun-Mini is complete with all that you need to get going from day one including the Arcadia Bird 8w Full-spectrum+UV-B (2.4%) bird lamp which is guaranteed to be UV potent for 12 whole months of use (up to 12 hours a day).
Birds also use Sunlight to ‘activate’ natural colour vision. The Arcadia Bird Lamp contains the correct balance of UV-A (12%) to enable this. Seeing the full range of natural colours allows birds to find certain foods, but is also used in mate selection, leading to more effective captive breeding. UV-A is also important within the natural UV-B to D3 cycles where it plays an important role in the natural self-regulation of D3 production. PureSun-Mini bird lighting kits can even be linked up if you have more than one cage. Simply use the Mini Link Cable (optional product code CPSMINLC) to power one kit from another without having to find extra wall sockets.
Unlike LED systems made for birds and reptiles, Arcadia Bird Full-Spectrum+UV-B lamps produce both UV-A and UV-B. LEDs may be advertised as being ‘full-spectrum’ but they are not able to produce the vital health giving wavelengths of light within ultraviolet.

Very pleased with product, lamp needs to be 20 cm/8inches minimum from bird's head, when perching, also give your birds an area they can shade from the light if they want to, directions were a bit scant about this. I don't get very much sunlight where I live, since I've had the light my two boys have been a lot more vocal
