Bird sand, or grit, as it is also called, is not good for budgies at all and should never be used. Budgies hull their seeds before eating them and therefore do not need extra help from the grit to break down their food. In fact, the grit wears away at the lining of their crop and can cause serious health issues over time.

I'm glad you checked first

Be sure to look at this article for more information!
