Can you house parakeets and lovebirds in the same cage?

I have a set of lovebirds and one parakeet, I need to have them in the same cage from time to time and want to make sure it is safe.

It is not recommended to house parakeet and lovebirds in the same cage. Especially because the lovebirds are in a pair, they can be very territorial against the parakeet.

It will depend on your individual birds but it would not be advisable to mix birds of different species without exercising caution.

Most birds can be housed together, including parakeets and lovebirds. If you notice bald patches on your bird that they couldn't have plucked themselves, stop for awhile.
