For now the Cresteds should be fine just as long as they are equal size, but I would start getting some more cages. As for the screen part, I don't like them. Cresteds come from New Caledonia which is pretty humid, and screen cages don't hold humidity well. You can put a small plastic container with some moist moss in it. But screen cages are especially bad for young cresteds, because they need more humidity to shed properly.
If I were you I would get a couple small plastic containers about 18-24in high and 16-24in long. Use a carpenters knife very carefully and cut an area big enough for a light fixture if you need one. Using a glue gun, glue aluminum screen to the top. Also make sure to make some holes on each end for some air circulation. This works very well for me and is extremely cheap and easy. Like $30-$50 for four cages. Hope this helps and good luck.:)
