If you give your bird a mixed diet of seed, fruit and vegetables the only supplement that would be needed is Calcium. But to make the calcium usable in the body they also need Vitamin D3 which they obtain from direct sunlight. And it must be direct sunlight, not filtered through a window. They only need about 15 to 20 minutes per day.

Hi Rin,
I give "Cutie"(My cockatiel) vitamins daily. In the morning we give him shower at terrace ,and we sit with him there so that he gets sunlight for 1 hour and his wings dries off. we place his cage on direct sunlight for only 5 mins as it is summer in india and temperature is high . we used to keep him in direct sunlight for -15 -20 mins during winter then we take him in shade but outside only as sunlight is rich source of Vitamin D.

At night, while having our dinner we tear 1 piece of Roti(You can use brown bread) add 1 drop of the vitamin (Bird Plus in india) as directed by VET and let him eat that first as he will be hungry so he will eat quickly and then give him his seed and egg white

May be addng vitamin on roti/bread may help you out
Regards,
Sri

That's the thing, vegetable or fruits he not eat, if see me putting seeds with vitamins Alice get them first and water he drink only in budgie bath, basicly he is to smart ( or he don't know what is budgie water cups?!)
And I cant get direct D vitamins from sun, here is now -12C ( living in snow country)
That's why all vitamins trying feed him in.
