Wondering about Bird compatability.

We have just recently built a large bird cage for our two parakeets. And were thinking of getting some more small birds. Trouble is... we aren't sure which other birds parakeets get along with. Could you help us out.

Bird compatability
by: Tracie

This is a tough question because only the birds can decide who they will accept.

You can try other small parakeets, like Bourke's, Scarlett Chested and Linolated Parakeets. Talk to the breeders and see if you need x number of males to females etc. Sometimes you can't have more than one male or they will fight.

A breeder that breeds both the species you have and the one you might want to add is the best person to answer this question.

You need to ask about breeding situations too. You don't want to end up with unwanted birds or your favorite female with egg binding or killing babies and all the stuff that comes with that.
