Default Big enough for three?

My big bird cage measures 15" x 27" x 31" tall and until an hour ago it was home to Billy and Benny. Recently I acquired Bob as 'free to good home' and after suitable quarantine firstly in a separate cage in a spare bedroom followed by a couple of weeks in a separate cage placed right next to Billy and Benny, I've now put Bob in the big cage with the other two.

Briefly, is my big cage OK for three birds? They all have separate perching facilities so there shouldn't be any problems but what do you all think?

Was that second measurement 272 or a typo ?

Here are cage size recommendations...https://talkbudgies.com/housing-budgi...age-sizes.html

The cage you have is 12,648 cubic inches if it measures 15 x 27.25 x 31

Essentials to a Great Cage-Talk Budgies Forums

The minimum recommended size for three budgies is:
Minimum size for 3 budgies-----32x18x20"
Volume = 11,520" cubic inches

so the cage you have is considered large enough.

However, if you can afford it and have the room, I'd recommend you look into getting one of these cages instead:

FDS Parrot Cage Bird Aviary Flight Breeding Cage w/Stand: Amazon.co.uk: Pet Supplies FDS Parrot Cage Bird Aviary Flight Breeding Cage w/Stand: Amazon.co.uk: Pet Supplies

30" x 18" x 48" interior measurements with 1/2" bar spacing

Default Big enough for three budgies?

The last cage mentioned sounds fantastic - but at the moment, I've nowhere to put a cage that size.

Until I've decorated the main bedroom in my flat and moved my little fishtank into the bedroom I won't have anywhere to put a bigger cage - the alcove in the living room is the only possible place I can put the fishtank because of the location of the power points. I've just done a quick check of the measurements and the cage would fit nicely in the alcove, too.......

How are Billy and Benny doing with Bob? Are they accepting of him?
