    I currently have a pair of king quails, 2 pairs of zeba finches, 1 of diamond doves and a pair of Gouldian Finches. I'm wondering what other birds and quails i can add into my avairy that get along with the birds that are already in there (other species of finches to), thanks.

    Here are a couple of good pages to read through about finch compatibility:

    Other than finches you could get a pair of bourkes parakeets - they are beautiful, hardy and have a gorgeous song. Other grass parakeets could work as well but some are more delicate. Avoid budgies, cockatiels (because they may harass your doves), and especially lovebirds.

    I don’t know what goes well with diamond doves but I’ve found cockatiels to go fine with finches and quail. And yes bourkes should go very well in your mix. You could also try Turks although watch out as males can get aggressive in breeding season so two bonded non aggressive female Turks would probably be better. You could also try societies as they seem to be very peaceable from what I have heard.
