Question Can I add more birds?

I have an aviary with around twelve birds and I wondered if I could add another 5 budgies and another 2 'tiels. The aviary has bourkes, cockatiels, budgies and quails, it is length-2.4M depth-1.8M height-2.4M

By adding more birds and having different species in the same enclosure, you are running much higher risks for fighting situations to happen where you can end up with one or more severely injured or killed bird(s).

Do you have a backup plan in case you will need to separate violent birds and house each of them on singular cages?

At this point, I'm not quite sure on what your plans are with your current flock and given the fact that you seem quite new to pet bird ownership, I truly think it would be wise to stick with your current flock which already has a decent number of birds.

I would not recommend adding any additional birds to the aviary.

The more room each individual bird has, the better off it will be both physically and emotionally.

I agree with aluz. When you house different species in one enclosure, you are running a great risk of birds being injured or killed.

I think you need to learn more about the birds you have- not only the species, but the individual birds- before you add anything else into the aviary.

Have you fully considered the costs of an emergency medical bill, should one of the flock become ill? Do you know where the nearest avian vet is?
The more birds you get, the higher the cost if an illness breaks out.

I totally agree with Therm.

I believe getting to know the unique personality of each of the birds you currently have and learning as much as possible about each species you own is very important.

Avian Vet Care is expensive and it is the owner's responsibility to ensure every bird gets the necessary care by a properly trained professional if and when they become ill or injured.

I also agree with the above.

I believe strongly that all birds should have lots of space to fly as well as to be able to have some "alone time" from the other birds if they so choose. More birds would take away all these options.

In addition, the flock dynamics would change completely. It's important to truly understand your current birds as well as the species as a whole before considering more birds, as mentioned above.
