thank you everyone, I feel right at home here already. I was wondering if after Sweetypie has gotten used to Sparky (the budgie) they are going to be next to each other next week, in their own cages, if they would be ok together in Sweetypies cage, my lovely husband said my house is getting more like a zoo every day, what are your thoughts?

hehe.....do our husbands know each other...lol :p Budgies have a tendency to be little bullies, I would not put a tiel and a budgie in the same cage its just asking for trouble some do get along but for the most part not housed in the same cage, keeping them side by side in there own cages would be best for them, my tiels and budgies have out time together but my budgies are always chasing the tiels away, there are others on here who have tiels and budgies that get along for the most part with out of cage playtime but most would agree they shouldn't be housed in the same cage. ;)

I agree with what Laura said. :D They definitely benefit from having their own personal space to go back to. Budgies are little bullies at times.
