Flite Aviaries NQ
Flite Aviaries NQ is the private, non-commercial aviculture hobby of Kel Biddle, owner of Flite-n-Flock Avian Health Products.
My first pair of Green Indian Ringnecks were acquired in 1984, whilst living in Airlie Beach, North Queensland
My first real & serious success was with the lovely Blue Cinnamon Cockatiel over 25 years ago. Since then I have kept numerous Australian & Exotic species and had success with breeding most of them.
My current favourites are the Lineolated Parakeets; Bolborhynchus lineola, Peach-fronted Conure; Eupsittula (Aratinga2014) aurea ,
the RED Lory Buru sub-species; Eos b. cyanonothus , & the Green-tailed or Yellow-bibbed Lory; Lorius chlorocercus, with having recently acquired a pr. of African Red-bellied Parrots; Poicephalus rufiventris and the Iconic Australian Native - the Double-eyed Fig Parrot : Cyclopsitta diophthalma as well as the Tanimbar or Tri-coloured Parrot Finch; Erythrura tricolor .
Some Licenses may be required for the Keeping or Transfer of certain Species.
State regulations/restrictions may apply on certain Species & we are unable to EXPORT. Qld Movement Advices (if required for Natives), & MTR's for Class 1 Exotics are Supplied.
My philosophy is to always put the needs of the bird paramount. I provide the best nutrition, I feel is widely available. I am a firm believer in the fact that you need to monitor your birds closely, ie watch and learn.
We do grow a number of seeding grasses along with Ceylonese Spinach (Basella), Okra & Passionfruit for our flock. Other fruits & vegetables are served when seasonally available.
All species are fed on appropriate Vetafarm Pellets & Foods. We have been using these for well over 25yrs.
Low Iron Diets are constantly under research for our Lories & other Frugivores. We have drawn up a list of Fruits & Vegetables , now extended with some Seeds,Grains & Nuts, with content of Vitamin A, Iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin E & Vitamin K, colour coded for quick reference, along with Calcium, Amino Acid/Protein, Total Carbohydrates & Total Fats.
Sprouted Seeds are extremely important during breeding.
Breeding is not simply having birds mating, but to produce strong, healthy, true to form chicks/birds on 'the perch'.
ALL BIRDS offered for Sale are BRED & Raised by Flite Aviaries NQ, (parent or hand raised) unless otherwise stated.
Obviously, most species are 'Seasonal Breeders' so availability changes, you may wish to register your interest in a species with us for future acquisition.
Where possible birds bred by us are S/S Closed Rung & DNA'd supplied
