Is it safe to house budgies with a cockatiel?

    Is it safe to house budgies with a cockatiel?

    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?

    I would just wait till you can get another cage; three budgerigars would probably overwhelm the cockatiel, but it also depends on their personality and what chances you want to take. If it doesn't go well what will you do with the bird? It will be very stressful for it to have to be caught, introduced to a new home, then caught and returned to the store again. Good luck with whatever you decide!
