That's great . Never heard of Princess of Wales parakeets until now . They are beautiful birds !

The two with the budgies are mellow but if put with the others my rosa male attacks my fallow male.

The 3 with the finches are fine with the finches but the rosa hen will have a go if a budgie gets too close.

Ideally id have separate aviaries for mine but how they are at current works until i can get bigger aviaries.

It does depend on the birds tbh.

So they get along well with finches ?
I thinking of getting a few Gouldian males if I ever manage to complete the aviary .

Mine are in with zebra finches and bengalese finches. They dont tend to bother each other. You just have to be mindful that bourkes can be a bit stupid where their size is concerned and will try to nest in a finch box. At current i have canary nest pans hung up around the aviary for the finches to build nests in and the hen bourkes do like to try and squeeze into the nests lol.

I don't think I will house them with finches but breeding them in a colony situation is fine ?
This is interesting...

I only had 2 hens and i cage breed all my parakeet species.

They do try and nest but i always discouraged it in the aviary. I only have 1 hen now so i leave the boxes up.

Thank you so much for the inputs

I guess I will find out more through my own experience with them .

I agree with Amelia, colony breeding is not a recommended situation for either Bourkes or Finches, but having them in a mixed aviary can work, as long as pairs are separated for breeding.

Do they have any names yet?

I'm not a fan of colony breeding either ways so it doesn't really matter that much to me.

Yes , I finally came up with names

Rosa male : Bubblegum
Normal male : Rainbow

Rosa female : Camellia
Lutino Femae : Candy

Your Bourke parakeets are beautiful.
I'm glad to hear you are quarantining the four of them away from the rest of your flock.

I would not recommend colony breeding the Bourkes.
In my opinion, it would be best for you to set the pairs up in individual breeding cages the same way one does with budgies.

Thanks for sharing their pictures with us.
