I keep one male canary in a cage, I am considering introducing two Zebra Finches in the same cage. Is there anything against this, or is it acceptable. Would it affect the Canary's singing? i am considering this a the cage is rather large and it would be attractive to have more activity within the cage. What do you think?

We are considering the geo cage for two finches and curious how much of a mess falls outside the cage?
