I would not recommend keeping budgies and lovebirds together in the same cage. Lovebirds can be very territorial and aggressive to other birds (especially during their breeding season) and they can easily harm or even kill a budgie.

Cockatiels and budgies seem to do well with one another. But anytime you mix birds together there is a chance of them harming one another.

Cockatiels and budgies seem to get a long ((most of the time)) But like I said... You can never predict if they will attack one another or not. I'd suggest putting their cages next to one another and see if they like each other, or if they are trying to attack one another, before ever putting them in the same cage.

Lovebirds should NEVER be housed with budgies. Lovebirds are quite territorial, can be aggressive and can seriously injure or kill a budgie.

In general, you'd be much better off having ONLY budgies in one cage. If you wish to have a cockatiel, the cocktiel should have its own cage.

Budgies are more active and can often be quite annoying to the more docile cockatiels.

Should you decide to have both and house them separately, then you can give the supervised out of cage time together.

Do you have budgies or any other birds at this time or have you in the past?

How long have you had your budgies and are they male or female?

Do you have any pictures you could share with us?

If you choose to get more budgies or any other bird, , please remember you should quarantine the new bird(s) for 4-6 weeks.
Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room your current bird(s) is in for a period of 4-6 weeks.

Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks. Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.
