When I bought my budgie, I bought some of the food the store owner was feeding him becuae I though, like dogs, bird might get sick with a sudden diet change. That's what I've been feeding him since then until I could research better foods.
It's not a very good quality seed mix. It has only two noticeable seed types, mostly white millet with some kernel-like seeds that have been dyed various colors sprinkled throughout. He doesn't eat the colored ones. I've been offering him fresh fruit and veggies but he hasn't shown any interest in them yet.
Yesterday I bought some Zupreem Fruit-Blend pellets and sprinkled a little on top of his seeds. While he was eating, I heard louder cracks than usual and after he finished he was chattering and singing for a solid half hour and even answering back to my whistles. I checked the bowl and it looked like a lesser amount of pellets but I couldn't be sure if he ate them or buried them while picking out the millet.
Until this morning that is, he had a big giant, soft lighter color poop.

Reason: Removed unnecessary description.
The first vegetable my guys tried (and loved) was sweet corn kernels sprinkled with a teeny bit of garlic powder (NOT salt).
Budgies seem to love "spicy" tastes.
My guys adore fresh basil, cilantro and chickweed.
They also like zucchini and red pepper.
