    As long as you don't mix any other neophema species with the
    splendids you will have no troubles, like turquosines,
    elegants, bluewings, etc...of course it also depends on the
    size of the aviary, I'm guessing quite large with the
    collection you have right now, some other aggressive species
    to be aware of in a community aviary are the rosellas, and
    some species of psephotus
    like bluebonnets, if any agrresion does show up I'm guessing
    it will be with the bourkes and splendids, but if your aviary
    is large enough I'm sure there will be no problems.
