Question What birds can go in the same cage as the budgies?

Just interested, I was wondering what types of birds can go in the same cage with budgies? I know bigger birds are highly recomended, cockatiels will get bullied by budgies, so what CAN go in the same cage with the budgies?

In general, it is not recommended to mix species. With any species, there might be some birds that get along with budgies and some that don't-- it's really up to the individual birds. For example, usually people say not to mix 'tiels with budgies, but there are at least two people on this forum that I can think of that have 'tiels and budgies housed together, happily. (Then again of course I know many people whose 'tiels do not like their budgies.) So, in short-- it's really up to the individuals. Sorry

So there is no right or wrong? It only depends on the birds-if they get along or not?

It does depend on your bird.
I have seen a green cheek conure playing with a budgie,
But I can only have Kieko (My GCC) out alone.

My 2 tiels get along great with my budgies, except for the
every so often "pecking order", which shikoba is the only one
who fights tootz, But its never bad, just the usuall behaviour.
I do see my birds several times a day every day so I always have
a close eye anyway

If your budgies & chilled, you can get another bird as a baby,
or one that also seems calm. They will learn to live together
because it's all they know Have you ever seen Marly the
blue ringneck on youtube who loves a male cockatiel ^_^

Yeah, they are pretty laid back and well behaved.
The only thing Kiddles gets angry at, is my fingers.
By the sounds of things, would they be good to live with a 'teil?

You can certainly try them living with a cockatiel.
OFten it's the budgies that pick on the tiels for some
reason, but I ahve seen tiels & budgies in a petbarn
& the budgies were all bleeding & missing toes.
Just pick a good natured tiel, quaratine, then keep
the cage next to the budgies cage for a week or 2,
while letting them have free flight time together, then
hopefully they can live together That's if you have enough
room in one cage of course ^_^ Good luck!

Thank you for your help.
If my parents allow, I will do this!
Thanks!

Just pointing out that you NEVER want to just throw two birds together - even if they are of the same species.

It is not guaranteed that ANY bird will get along. Any new bird will need its own cage.
