Avian Bulb Placement and Fixtures
Would it be better to use an overhead ceiling fixture in my bird room or something closer to their cage, like a swag? Would a gradual dimming simulate natural sunrise and sunset?
We generally find that widely illuminating a large area using a ceiling fixture is preferable to close-up lighting methods, as this better simulates the effect of natural daylighting across the entire sky.
Gradual dimming would indeed also provide a better simulation of the progression of natural daylight throughout the day, although implementing an automated solution here would be some what challenging.
