I personally don't feed my flock other cooked birds, I draw a moral line there.
I also don't know of the long term effects this can have especially on such a small bird species as a budgie.
If the budgies have a good, balanced diet there really is no need to add meat to their diets, these birds are granivores.
They will get enough nourishment from a good quality seed mix/pellets, veggies, sprouts, the occasional little piece of fruit and egg food when breeding/raising their young, when moulting or when sick.
Egg food should be present on their diets daily when breeding. Non breeding birds can get daily amount of egg food when moulting or when feeling under the weather.
On other occasions, you can offer egg food once or twice per week.
For all the detailed info on this subject, be sure to check the stickies and articles on Diet and Nutrition.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
