Too many parrots too quickly

I have a baby tame budgie, am going to have a hand tamed grey come in to the home in about 4 weeks and want a cockatiel - hand tame as well. Would bringing three birds of completely different breeds at the same time be a big mistake?

Getting several birds
by: Tracie

Hello Virgina,

I do not think it should be a problem, but every bird personality is different, so one can never know. I would not allow them to all be out of the cage together without close supervision until you know that they all get along together.

Also, consider if you have the time to spend with each bird to help them adjust to their new home with you, and also time to spend with them in the future as a part of their flock.
