help please red rump parakeet with others
Hi. I have been offered a young male red rump. He has been communally bred in an aviary with other red rumps, canaries, finches and budgies. Having looked in the net it says don't keep them in a communal aviary as they will kill the other birds. Bearing in mind it is a large aviary 12' x 6'.
I am tempted to try them as other birds will be able to get away and if trouble I could put nest box up and partition aviary for breeding season.
Also a blue ringneck has been offered.
I was told if I kept one it would be ok. But to be honest I think it might get frustrated and either need none or a pair? I know lots of people who house ringnecks in large aviaries with other birds.
