Your birds are quite young aren't they? So it isn't a problem yet. But continue to encourage new foods.
I would also remove the millet and let them have it only as a treat/reward.
Mishka is nearly 3 and would usually eat other seeds and what not. Id be worried to remove it incase they dont eat :s

I would simply remove the millet for a while and see if they revert back to seed.
Iv just removed it and they have 3 bowls of seed in their cage (2 at the bottom and one normal on the side of the cage) They also have two calcium blocks and a cuttlefish. Hopefully they chew on these and eat normal seed now Iv removed it :s
