Are Canary Winged parakeets good in coexisting with other small parrots?

Are Canary Winged parakeets good in coexisting with other small parrots? Or are they rather aggressive or territorial?

We have a parrotlet and a budgie living in the same room (our living room). Each has its own cage, but cages stay open, birds spend daytime with us, only sleeping in cages. I'd like to buy a young Canary Winged parakeet in case it could live in the same room, perhaps in its own cage - but also opened all the time. (Parrotlets are said to often be aggressive towards other birds, but it depends on a bird's personality. Our 8 years old parrotlet Chizhik is quite shy.)

:welcomegroup:My baby never had a problem with other birds but remember that every bird is different. If you slowly introduce them they probably tolerate and maybe like each other ;)

Thank you. Sure, I know that each bird had its own individuality. We're experienced parrotlet owners, and our parrotlets were very different, not like each other.
I'm glad that Canary Winged are not known to be generally aggressive (parrotlets are). I just recently became aware of Canary Winged, they seem to be wonderful birds and not so insanely pricey as Sierra parakeets.
I'm now trying to find a young Canary Winged in a drivable distance from Silver Spring MD.

I’ve been on a journey to find one and it’s proven difficult :(

Shady pines breeds the Brotogeris species and feathered treasures aviary has the occasional Canary winged parakeet.
They’re in Florida but they do ship ;)
