No, you can never, ever keep the Ringnecks and the Cockatiels together whether a big outside cage or inside. The Ringneck is a very aggressive bird, and the Cockatiel is a very docile, peaceful bird, and the Ringnecks will kill them.

Generally, understand that same species birds have to be kept together, and that may simplify things for you. Keep same species birds together, and do not overcrowd them either. Overcrowding causes birds to fight to the death, destroy each others eggs and babies and just generally cause problems. Keep no more than two pairs of any kind of birds together and make sure the flight is at least 8 foot by 8 foot for birds the size of the Ringnecks and a minimum of 12-16 feet for Amazons, Greys, and extremely large flights for birds larger than those. Aviaries are expensive if done correctly and if not done correctly, birds will die. Birds cannot be left outside during winter regardless without supplemental heat. Outside aviaries have to be wired for electricity so light and heat can be provided. For the first 3 years, birds have to be brought inside each winter. Do your homework on acclimating birds plus everything you need to build an adequate outside enclosure.

Outside enclosures can be as expensive as small houses, and if they are not built correctly, birds are the ones to suffer, so you may wish to forget about it.
