Tom Roudybush, owner and nutritionist of Roudybush, Inc., began manufacturing pellets, crumbles, and handfeeding formulas in 1985 after doing 16 years of nutritional research at the University of California, Davis. Mr. Roudybush studied various bird species, including 10 years of research on the nutritional requirements of pet birds. Mr. Roudybush has generated most of the published nutritional research in pet birds. He began manufacturing his diets in response to repeated requests from aviculturists hearing his talks at meetings throughout the United States. The research fl ocks of cockatiels and Orange-winged Amazons at the University of California, Davis have been maintained on nothing but Roudybush diets since 1981; no other population of psittacines has been maintained on any other commercially available, formulated diet for such a long period of time.

Mr. Roudybush continues to be involved in nutritional research and is committed to learning more about the requirements of birds kept in captivity, applying that knowledge to his state-of-the-art diets for your birds, and contributing to avian nutritional research in general.

Roudybush, Inc. manufactures pelletized diets for breeding birds, pet birds, and birds that have specialized nutritional needs due to certain disease processes such as liver disease, kidney disease, intestinal tract diseases, and obesity. Roudybush, Inc. also manufactures a medicated pellet for fl ock treatment of avian chlamydiosis. Dry powder formulas are available for lories, handfeeding pet birds and young squab. High quality ingredients and steam pelleting are used to ensure that potentially harmful organisms are not present in the fi nished products. Samples of every batch of feed are retained at the mill for quality assurance and random samples are tested quarterly for any evidence of contamination.

When you buy Roudybush products you can be assured that your birds are eating a high quality diet based on solid, sound nutritional information.
