    Parakeets and Finches together

    Has anyone here ever put Society Finches in the same habitat as parakeets?

    I have 5 male parakeets and 2 male and 2 female Society Finches. The male finches are plucking the females. Really bad. I have given them all kinds of stuff to build nests with in hopes that they would stop pulling out the girls feathers. But it didn't work.

    I have an aviary for the parakeets and I was wondering if I could perhaps move the female finches to the aviary. I am not sure what kind of results to expect if I did that.

    Can anyone tell me if this will work?

    TIA

    Unless it's really big I wouldn't recommend it. Budgies will sometime go after them. If you do it keep a close eye on them and make sure there are a lot of perches.

    Thanks. I guess I won't try that. I don't want to compound the problem.

    I don't know if it's recommended, but I recently read a classified ad of someone selling 1 budgie and 1 finch together (they were buddies). I don't know what sex they were or what size cage they were in though.
