    kakariki or Bourke with Cocketiel in same cage

    I know that any bird can or cannot get along with another, but generally what do you think about these two birds types to befriend my cockatiel? I will be getting a new cage this week 78cm x 52cm x 92cm and want to get my bird a friend. I am not interested in getting another teil, and from the (literally) years of research and debating I think that some sort of grass parakeet, a Linoelated parakeet or a Kakiriki will be the best match. My teil is 6 years old, and has seen a canary and a few finches come and go in that time, I'm not sure how he'll take to a new bird. Opinions and advise please.

    In an aviary the cohabitation is possible with all the species you've mentioned but in a cage... I would not take the chance.
    However, if you're really decided to add a new specie to your cockatiel I think the best choice is a Kakariki but keep in mind the 0 risk does not exist.
