Hi Welcome to TB. Dilutes are among my very favorite budgies. Take a look at the diet section Here on TB and Lindseys Cute little birdies aviary. It is not easy to encourage budgies to expand their diet selections. This is a young bird so it should be a little more flexible. Budgies need a varied diet. that includes fresh fruits and veggies, egg food/soft food, basic seeds:canary, millets, oatgroats. Add 10% or less of the oil rich fancy finch seeds,pellets. and sprouts. Ther are several good pellet brands Roudybush adult maintenance nibbles Zupreem get the canary size pellets, naturals or fruit flavors,Harrisons and nutriberries is good for transition to pellets or when budgies are sick.
Soluvite D vits by vetafarm is good to catch any holes in the budgies diet. Also Start your Budgie first aid kit. See Good suggestions in first aid section here on TB. Windy city parrot Also has good items for your kit . Purchase only what tools you can actually use . Be sure to have multiple cuttle bone , manu rose , kabobs, millet spray to encourage a busy beak as budgies express by chewing. Natural perches are good for chewing and exercise for the feet. Enjoy your adventure with Raptor,
Blessings, Jo Ann
