Try giving them a piece of romaine lettuce, the darker leaves are the best, start with a smaller piece as the entire leaf may be frightening to them at first, clip it to the cage bars and see if they show any interest, you may have to do this day after day until they decide to try a bite. It's good that you are planning on a larger cage, as you have mentioned your current cage is too small. I would cutback a bit on the seeds, as FaeryBee has indicated about 2 teaspoons a day of seed per bird is enough. Your current cage is probably not large enough for multiple food dishes but once you have more space it would be good to have 2 separate food dishes or more if you plan on feeding pellets separately.
