Default Egg food or seeds?

Hi everyone.
I'm facing a predicament as my little 8 week old budgie should be off formula by now and onto seeds completely. However, this is not the case. I just finished the formula I've been using and I am hesitant to get another because 1: They're insanely expensive and don't sell them in smaller packs and 2: I feel it's time he went on to proper budgie food permanently. Of course if it's absolutely necessary I will definitely get him another pack.
My problem is that he still hasn't mastered the art of cracking open budgie seeds. He cracks a few open here and there but mostly he just picks one up and drops it to pick another one up repeatedly.
I was wondering if egg food is a better alternative to the hard budgie seeds he currently has? Perhaps a combination of egg food and seeds in his bowl?
Any advice would be accepted!
