Can a finch and a parakeet live in the same cage?
No. Finches and parakeets are both commonly kept as pets, but they are not closely related. There are many different species of finch and parakeet, but they are not the same thing. Finches are of the taxonomic order Passeriformes (perching birds) and parakeets are of the taxonomic order Psittaciformes (parrots).
