My birds in my aviary
Bourkes parakeets are fairly timid, calm and unassuming.
They aren’t nervous or excitable like some parrots.
They are not known to be aggressive with other species of birds – even birds smaller than themselves.
However, their gentle nature can make them an easy mark for aggressive birds.
They can be housed in an aviary with other peaceful, passive birds such as cockatiels, finches, doves, quail.
Make sure the flight is quite large to provide ample flying space with many levels of perches and food/water stations.
All birds must be able to cohabitate without bickering or those should be removed.
All birds must be fully flighted.
Not all birds will get along, similiarly, not all Bourkes parakeets will get along with other Bourkes parakeets.
It is not recommended to house Bourkes parakeets with budgies because of budgies bossy, aggressive natures.
Budgies have been known to pluck out the feathers and bite off the toes of Bourkes parakeets.
“They are certainly not ‘beginner’s birds’ and will usually not thrive if they are not provided with a spacious aviary where a small flock can be kept in company of a few other small and harmless birds.
It is possible to keep a pair or a single bird in a cage, but they will be sluggish and unhealthy if they are not let out to fly and socialize with humans frequently. ” Wikipedia.
I was just wondering about some native australian bird species to breed. I have Bourkes and Scaly Parakeets.
I was thinking like Rosella’s, Rainbow Lorikeets, and some native grassparrots.
Easy 10 points
One of my aviaries, it has doves, quail, budgies, cockatiels and a rosa bourke
I am considering Bourkes and Lineolated parakeets. They seem to be similar species and about the same size. Does anyone know how well they would get along?
I have an aviary 18 foot long, 15 wide and 6 feet high.
I am currently housing budgies, kakarikis, bourkes and quails.
I was wondering if there are any nice birds that will go with them.
(Im in Aus) I was thinking splendids, but I am open for advice.
