If birds are bonded then usually it is okay to house them as long as they're happy. I know Donna has a Bourke's with her Linnie and I've seen a sun conure with a caique

Sometimes 2 birds of different species that have been together since very young and has bonded, those ones are ok to house together. Older birds are more difficult, those shouldn't be house together.
