does nobody know?
Regular light bulbs work just fine.
Regular light bulbs will make them lay but if they don't have access to sunlight they will suffer other health problems. Sunlight is important to health. Even humans that are indoors too much with no exposure to direct sunlight and only light through a window and artificial light will start to have health problems. If they will be indoors only it would be best to get a fluorescent strip and put a daylight or full spectrum bulb in it.
I agree with the other posts. I use a regular bulb.
My vet tells me to use a full-spectrum bulb, otherwise the birds will have vitamin deficiencies and other problems.
True, full spectrum lighting they need. Mine go outside during the afternoon, so I don't need to worry about that kind of a light bulb at least.
how about a covered Xpen type thing for some natural sunlight?
My guys are indoor/ outdoor
