Default Sprouts. What kind?

My sweet Rico still won't touch veggies or any fruit but he is now sprout obsessed! I'm happy he will at least eat those. I purchased a 4 tray sprout grower (should be delivered next week). So far I have just sprouted him millet and chia seeds in a dish. What other kinds of seeds are safe to sprout for him?

I found this list online of sprouts for birds. Is there anything on this list he should NOT have? I remember reading beans weren't good for budgies...maybe I was mistaken or are the sprouts different?

I appreciate any advice!
