Default Nutritional Requirement Measurements?

Okay, so I was wondering if anyone has info on the amounts of vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, etc., that budgies (or cockatiels, since they're similar) need in their diet. For example, it isn't very helpful when a website says an eclectus requires a diet rich in vitamin A. What do they mean by "rich in vitamin A"? Do they require 20 μg of vitamin A, 200 μg, or 10,000 μg of vitamin A? What I might consider to be a diet "rich in vitamin A" could very well leave an eclectus vitamin A deficient. Or it could very well cause vitamin A toxicity, because the info fails to specify how much is enough, and how little is too little.

I do my best to give my budgies a well balanced diet, but at the end of the day, I'm left wondering whether or not I've provided too much vitamin C, too little potassium, too little vitamin A, etc.

So, is there anything out there that is like a nutritional requirement chart for humans, but for budgies or cockatiels instead? Like, something that says budgies need 2g of protein, 20 μg of vitamin B, etc.? Thanks.

Never mind, I found the article I was looking for.
