The UV light bulb, Arcadia Puresun Compact Bird Lamp, emits 2.4% UVB (ultraviolet B) light.


UV light replaces sunlight’s ultraviolet radiation in indoor conditions and aids in synthesizing Vitamin D3. It restores the natural color and sheen of feathers. UV light improves a bird’s appetite and immune system resilience. It helps calcium absorption for normal feather growth, a healthy skeleton, and a sound beak. The impact of UV light is crucial for maintaining a healthy immune system and mental well-being.

UV Light Bulb for Birds – Arcadia Puresun Compact Bird Lamp 2.4% UVB

UV light designed for birds replaces the ultraviolet radiation from sunlight indoors and is essential for the synthesis of Vitamin D3 in a bird’s body. Vitamin D3 plays a crucial role in calcium absorption, vital for normal feather growth and healthy skeletal development. UV light restores the natural color and sheen of feathers, improves the bird’s appetite, and enhances reproductive functions. It also helps birds perceive color differences and boosts the immune system’s resilience.

Importance of Vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is necessary for calcium absorption, ensuring normal feather growth, a healthy skeleton, and beak, and is crucial for maintaining a robust immune system and mental health. Birds can only naturally obtain Vitamin D3 through skin exposure to sunlight, as it is found in limited amounts in certain foods like fish oil and, to some extent, egg yolk. Therefore, it is challenging to provide sufficient Vitamin D3 through diet alone for proper calcium absorption. Without Vitamin D3, calcium cannot be absorbed, leading to severe calcium deficiency in birds, causing issues such as feather-plucking behavior, bone diseases, stress-related behavior, immune system disorders, and more. Birds living indoors throughout the year often experience a deficiency in Vitamin D3 because sunlight through windows lacks the necessary intensity, and glass filters out a significant portion of the radiation.

Specifications: The UV bulb has a standard E27 socket and is suitable for use in all lamps. The product does not flicker during operation. Optimal ultraviolet radiation for birds is 2.4% UVB and 30% UVA. Arcadia lamps have special reflective materials in their casings, allowing for a broader radius of light.

Usage: Recommended lamp distance from the bird is between 30 – 50 cm; suggested burning interval is 4-6 hours for larger species and 2-4 hours for smaller species.

Note: Ensure that the bird has a shaded area to rest if it becomes tired of the light. It is not advisable to exceed the recommended burning hours. The bulb should be replaced every 1 – 1.5 years as the effectiveness of UV rays diminishes with prolonged use.

Warning: Before using the bulb for the first time, keep it at room temperature and then connect it to the power supply. Do not use the bulb during thunderstorms, as electrical disturbances may occur. UV bulbs are sensitive to power outages.
