Hiya! My two budgies ( Ringo and Cheddar, 10 months old) are pretty happy babies and I am pretty sure we spoil them! ( who doesnít?!)
We recently have decided to take our babies off of vitamin supplements as they are eating chop quite regularly, but want to ensure they have enough vitamin D to stay happy and healthy.
I live in Michigan however and have been thinking more and more about lighting since they have been so happy recently to go outside and get so much natural light. ( our apartment in winter months can be a bit dark so we do have regular lights on timers for them).
Itís seems the more I read the opinions online, the more confused I get, so I thought this forum would be a good place to ask. I did see a brief post but couldnít find too much for beginners here. Did I miss something?
If not,
What do you do for lighting?
Do you think it works?
Please be specific as possible.
Thank you in advance from a Cheddar, Ringo, and Fugulove. 😉

A little summer sun....for your viewing pleasure.

It's great to allow your budgies to enjoy the natural sunlight during the summer days.
To be completely safe, please be sure you are with the cage and have it under constant supervision the entire time you have it outdoors.

Some people use Full Spectrum Lighting for their budgies and you can read about it in the linked thread.
If you choose to go that route, please do not use the light for more than one hour per day.

Personally, I use Soluvite D instead. It is a supplement that is easy to administer and provides your budgies with the necessary Vitamin D.

Soluvite D
