I absolutely would not recommend keeping finches and budgies together. You should keep birds of the same species or at least family together. Finches are much smaller than budgies, and cannot defend themselves should the budgie decide to attack. Budgies can take off a finch's foot or beak. The same goes for keeping budgies with birds bigger then them. Budgies can suffer a similar fate, with missing toes and beaks, from a bird only a little bigger than them, such as a cockatiel. It is not a good idea. I have experience both personally and professionally with birds.

I agree as well. If you want a community time aviary, you need to keep the same time of species or family together like she said . Just an example would be finches , canary , and a diamond dove. If you have questions about the species family look it up or just look at the beaks!! They all have similar beaks.

Yes! Certainly you can. First I was afraid to put a pair of finches in a cage of 6 lovebirds who had their 5 babies in nest box.But when I put finches inside the cage, the two species never cared about each other.I had heard that lovebirds are very aggressive during their breeding time but they never came close to finches. Make sure that cage is big enough, mine is 3 by 3.Happy mingling!. Two species in one cage look very attractive.
