I had an at length phone call with a long-time customer.
Her bird has been biting and she wanted a referral to a behaviorist.
We talked about Keto and his biting, then I discussed the lighting issue that might be biting triggers and she was interested.
Subject: Re: Lighting
I learned a great deal about lighting and birds today during our conversation, and I really appreciate how generous you were with your time.
Your knowledge and experience are invaluable, and I can’t thank you enough for sharing them with me. I know we’ll be talking again soon.
Many thanks and happy holidays,
I enjoyed our conversation today. Sorry if I was a little longwinded. You are a good listener.
Here are a few links to our lighting blog posts.
These Economy Bulbs are fine.
One bulb set up as close to the top of the cage or 6-12 inches above where they would sit on a stand.
We used to sell other brands, some that cost upwards of $30.
We don’t find they are any better than the $12 one we sell.
But you can put the bulbs in any fixture that you have that will work out for you.
Here they are above the parakeet aviary. It is a large cage so they need more than one bulb.
I also attached a picture of the Featherbrite Lamp that is mounted on top of Keto’s cage (the African Ringneck).
These lamps are very nice looking and come with a metal frame that allows it to be attached to any style cage.
It could also be set right on top of the cage without the frame.
But this allows the light to light the top of the cage some too when he plays up there.
I hope this helps you with your GCC and he settles down.
Let me know.
Thank you so much
