was founded by Michael Massie with the goal of providing the best
possible foods for your companion animals. Unemcumbered by history,
Pretty Bird has taken a fresh approach to nutrition and applied new
ideas and technology to solve old problems in unique ways. Initially
working with prominent breeders, Pretty Bird launched a nationwide
grass roots distribution network which resulted in rapid growth in
the marketplace. Our continuing research and application of new ideas

Pretty Bird was first to:
multi-colored, multi-shaped foods to enhance acceptance
introduce species specific formulas
house manufacturing capabilities
Quality is our primary concern in food,
packaging, and customer service. We operate an in house quality
assurance lab with a microbiologist on staff. An independent
laboratory runs continual analysis to assure consistency in
composition. Our in house toxicology lab screens all incoming grains
for toxins. This ensures the purity of any raw materials in the
manufacture of our feeds. Our breeding and research facility in
Florida is always using the food which is currently being sold
providing an additional quality assurance safeguard. We do it
ourselves to make sure it's done right.
1995, when only 5 years old, Pretty Bird acquired and installed one
of the most technologically advanced extrusion facilities for the
manufacturing of pet food products. Our system is based on Swiss made
twin screw extruders, this high-tech equipment is commonly used to
produce human breakfast cereals. One Buehler extruder has the
capability to produce 4 tons of food per hour, 24 hrs/day, 7
days/week. A smaller Buehler extruder was installed for research and
specialty products. This smaller extruder has a capacity of 200 to
1500 lbs per hour, making it economically feasible to produce small
bathces or test runs of food.
customer service has always been a primary objective at Pretty Bird.
We have always had an 800 help line which is managed by experienced
knowledgeable people. We are happy to provide advice on feeding and
other aspects of captive management of exotic companion animals. We
love to hear the questions or ideas of veterinarians, breeders and
pet owners. Please give us a call at 1-800-356-5020 we may be of
