As always, thank you so much for these helpful webinars! We just heard you talk about the cockatiel that had bone problems, possibly due to low calcium and vitamin D. We want to be sure that we are doing the BEST for our beloved Green Cheek Conure (Cinnamon Turquoise). 🙂 We have a ZooMed Avian UVA & UVB lamp for our feather baby. We make sure that her lamp is at least 12 inches from her and that she has “shady areas” inside and outside of her cage so she can get away from the lamp if she chooses. We hear and read different numbers on this: how long should we leave her ZooMed Avian lamp on for? (8 hours a day, 10 hours a day or 12 hours a day?) Also, is 12 inches far enough away from her or should it be farther? Thank you again!
