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.
more info: i was given 2 zebra finches in a cage. i traded the finches for a parakeet, keeping the cage. the petstore told me that parakeets need cages with horizontal bars, so they can climb easier; the cage i have has vertical bars. i've noticed my keet does slide down the wires. ... should i get a different cage? thanks
Possibly Finches but I wouldn't Highly recomend it
Yes, but it depends on how large the cage is. I bought 2 parakeets and a cage and they seem to be doing fine. The cage however was a good size and was around 35 dollars. I bought the parakeets and supplies from Petco.
As long as they have the proper cage size, yes
No, unless you live in an area where parakeets are indigenous, then they will probably die since they are not in their environment.
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.
Yeah i have a male lovebird & 2 female parakeets & they are just fine. Although other people have really aggresive lovebirds. luckily i don't
there is no such thing as a wild hamster they are domestic pets that live in a cage in your house :)
Yes, they can. I have two parakeets, a male and a female. They can also mate and have babies.
yes they are my parakeet was lonely in his cage, then i put a mirror he got happier and kissed the mirror a lot then i bot a new parakeet he was as happy or more. Parakeets tend to be more happy and intelligent with a nother bird in it's cage.
Where do parakeets live and i want a place that is in Singapore
yes parakeets do live in the tropical rainforest..
parakeets or budgies live in the wilds of Australia
Finches live 15 to 20 years.
yeah parakeets can live in a out door aviary.
Parakeets can live up to fifteen years long.
I know for a fact that parakeets and cockatiels can live together and be very affectionate towards eachother.
Cockatiels and Bourke parrots are good companions for budgies, but Bourkes are not very assertive and will likely not breed with budgies in the cage. Other small parrots can also live with budgies, as can zebra finches. Quails can live in the bottom of the cage also.
Parakeets generally live between 8-10 years
Since they live in Australia they would eat most of the things you find in your parakeet food. One thing they certainly do not eat is apples. I have 6 parakeets in one huge cage and they love carrots that is an awesome treat. ;)
Yes It does Because parakeets need hot air to live in That's where they live longer and also Parakeets Love to have hot tropical Rain forest
Yes, just give them a large enough cage, make sure they have toys, untreated wood, and plenty of food and water.
Parakeets can live 2-3 days without food
Parakeets that live in groups are usually more friendly. In the wild, parakeets live in flocks, so it's best if you buy them in pairs.
