    Is that a real waterfall in your aviary or is it a backdrop ? All I can say is that really awesome looking. Buttons should do fine in there I think as long as you have lots of little hiding places for them.

    That’s really cool. I’d let the buttons have the run of the entire enclosure they are great at keeping all the falling food on the ground cleaned up. Just make sure you have a lot of little hiding spots for the buttons to run into if they need to hide. 1/2 coconut shells with a door cut in it works or little wooden houses from the dollar store work too or those reptile houses from the pet store would be great to and they would look nice too because they look like rocks or logs. Where about are you located.

    Yes, they can co habitat. The parakeets will usually stay up high and the buttons will roan the ground. Make sure there's plenty of places where they can hide and settle down if they want. Buttons are awesome. Is that your aviary? Its amazing!
