    In the corner of the room behind Daisy's cage I have a 3 light standard spot lamp which you can angle the lights
    If I changed the bulbs to UVA would that be as good as the specific pet lights?
    Many thanks

    The bulbs are a specific spectrum for avian and need to be positioned overhead of the bird, not to the side at all, and at specific distance. You might find that your fittings could give the correct postition....however the avian bulbs are all a strange shape, which may mean you can’t get them to go into the holder.....also different avian bulb manufacturers bulbs are different shapes so you can’t fit an Arcadia bulb into an aviansun fitting and vice versa
