Well, Finches are fast fliers and Parakeets and Finches are from same environment so they can be fine having each other.

Do they all share the one cage?
It looks like a lovely set up for them but a little small maybe for 6 birds.
I also see there's three nest boxes inside as well which might not be ideal if you have female budgies. You could end up with some fighting and injured birds if you're not careful.

hozaifa, I know you are very pleased with your set up and current living conditions of your budgies and finches, but you are really risking their health with this set up.

From what I can tell, you have a male in the flock and I would guess at least one female with the other four there. If your budgies are young and have not got in breeding condition yet, then you likely will not have had any issues yet.
But when the females get in breeding condition, they will fight for the nest boxes and this could easily lead in fatality to your other birds. You are taking a HUGE risk to the welfare of your birds.

You need to remove the nest boxes.
You need to have the finches in a different cage so that a budgie will not attack them and injure them.
You need to split the budgies into two cages, as I don't believe they have enough room in the current cage you are housing them in.

I can tell from the amazing effort you have made on the cage you have you really care about your birds. While everything seems okay now, it is likely because hormones have not kicked in yet. Believe me that when they do, things can change very quickly.
All eight of my budgies live no more than two per cage. I have one cage that can house 4 budgies but because it was not ideal to house two males and two females together, I split them up for their own good.

Please please remove the nest boxes.
Keep an eye on the sleeping tent in case your budgies or finches catch their feet on the fleecy material.
I strongly suggest you need to buy two additional cages, rather than one larger cage.

I agree with Emma. You don't want to risk the health of your gorgeous babies.

I hope you don't feel like you are being picked on but they are right. The budgies need far bigger accommodation than you have.

This is a useful link for you:

Please remember that whatever we may think is OK, there are natural laws that apply to birds to ensure their welfare is a priority.

Hi there,

I fully agree with the advice given and we have already talked about this on previous threads about your budgies. You have also had in the past a case of aggression between your budgies.

For their overall safety, mental and physical health it's best to remove the birdie tent and the nest boxes out of the cage. This is not the way to breed responsibly and you don't yet seem to possess enough experience on budgie ownership and the proper knowledge to allow your birds to breed.
And yes, that cage is far too small to house all of your budgies, not to mention the finches that should have their own flight cage to be in.
