I don't know what limestone flour is (I'm a foreigner). As to the cuttlefish bone, it is a very important source of calcium for our birds, so yes you can and should place a cuttlebone on your budgie's cage.

Limestone flour is a rich source of calcium in the form of flour....they feed it to tortoises and horses.

I have never heard of anyone giving limestone flour to their birds, so I wouldn't advise you to try it, as aluz said cuttlefish bone is an important source of calcium for budgies, if you feel your bird isn't getting enough calcium then there are bird safe products available that you add to their water, or you could give them a hardboiled chicken egg complete with the shell, they love it as well.

I have never heard of giving our budgies limestone flour before.. .. You should get advice from your Avian vet first if you are not sure....... If it were me I would not give limestone flour to my budgie...I give my budgie a calcium health bell you can buy this from the pet store.....
