Budgies and cockatiels
Hello I'm new I hope someone can advise me! Long story short, My aunt used to breed cockatiels, gave a pair to this lady. A few months later the lady returns the birds because their babies kept dying. When my aunt asked how she cared for them she said she only fed them one type of seed and kept them outside all day. Keep in mind they live in Kansas where the weather reaches over 100 degrees so this lady is a horrible person for that. My aunt is unable to keep them so she asked if I could give them a home which of course I said yes and they'll be on their way here next week :p Now, I own 20 budgies they live in a nice big aviary. My question is can I put the cockatiels in there with them and if so how should I go about it? Should I quarantine them also? Any advice is appreciated!

Welcome to talk budgies. How great it is that you can provide a home for these tiel where they will be cared for properly. Some folk's here have success housing tiel and budgies together, and some don't. Budgies can be overly "busy" and make the more relaxed tiel uncomfortable.

I would definitely quarantine, and afterward's try housing their cage in your aviary and giving them out of cage time to see how it goes. I hope you will share some pics of your current flock nd new tiel when they arrive...:)

Hi and :welcome: to Talk Budgies!

It's very nice of you to take in the two cockatiels.
I agree with Randy with regard to quarantine. I also think housing the 'tiels cage inside the aviary after the quarantine period and providing them with out-of-cage time in the aviary with the budgies (under supervision) would be a good way to introduce them and see how they do together. :)
