Default Minimum size for housing with linnie?

I have two boy-budgies and their cage is fairly large (32x21x36). I know that it is a bad idea to house different species together in cramped quarters, but if hypothetically I got a linnie someday, what would be the minimum-sized aviary for keeping them together?

I would not consider putting a linnie in with your budgies hypothetically or not.
Linnie's are bigger than budgies with a much stronger beak and could severely injure a budgie with just one bite.

I agree with FaeryBee. I have four budgies and one linnie and have never put them together. My budgies are hyper compared to my linnie, who is much more laid back. The budgies make him nervous. Budgies have also been known to pick on linnies and if a linnie bites, the budgie might be seriously hurt. They need constant supervision if put together for outside cage time. Linnies need bigger cage space and I would not recommend putting a linnie in with budgies. You would need a cage about the same size as you have your budgies in. Linnies love to climb, so if you can find a cage with horizontal bars would be great. Linnies are wonderful companions and love spending all their time with their "parronts" and are kind of the "couch potatoes" of the parrot family. Hope this helps and if I can help with any questions about linnies, please ask!

Thank you for your replies. I probably won't be getting one any time soon in any case--for one thing, Piggy would be insanely jealous!
