    I am in the middle of building my new aviary after being without one for about 15 years it will be 16ft x 6ft x 6ft and I am already planning what will go in it, this is were i need a little help previously I have kept Budgies, Zebra Finches and Canaries but this time I am contemplating Bourkes (1 pair), Napoleon Weaver (1 trio), Canaries (2 pairs) and Java sparrows, what i am asking is will these get along as I have read different articles some saying they will and others saying they won't. I have seen them together in a aviary at a zoo but the aviary was about 3 times the size of what i am building but there was also considerably more birds than i will be keeping.

    Hi, personally I have never kept finches or other finch type birds but I have several bourkes in an aviary with kakarikis, budgies and turquosines and they all get on extremely well (although budgies do like to be the boss)! I would really recomend kakarikis, they are so comical, curious and can be very affectionate! They are great to watch and interact with. They are like an easy-to-care-for parrot! AMAZING!!

    All of the birds I have mentioned above do great in the winter as long as they have a sheltered area.

    Good luck and enjoy!!
