I've wanted to keep a cockatiel for quite a while now but I don't have the space or money for a separate cage. I have quite a large cage - 30 by 20/5 by 53 - and there are three budgies in it. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on housing budgies and cockatiels and essentially gleaned that it could work if done properly. However, these comments are based mostly on a one-to-one relationship between budgies and cockatiels. Would three parakeets to one cockatiel overwhelm the cockatiel?
