Post Diet for when molting

Hi,
I've read a thread about Miserable Molting even its not the case with my budgies but my budgies are molting especially last month they had molted alot and this month 2 of my budgies have pin feathers and my blue budgie Rio (he is also the most skinniest than my other 2 budgies) has more pin feathers on top of his head than my other green budgie (sweet pea). So I read on that thread that we must give Quiona and Flex seeds during that Miserable Molting but I have read other places too that we should give these as usual too. So what brand Quiona and Flex seeds you would suggest me to give my budgies? And what should I look for when buying these? Also I tried to find Sun flower seeds for my budgies but my local grocery stores have those big black ones with silver line or else they have all rosted and salted which I know we can't give those to little birds. Any suggestions for that (brand or site)?
Thanks all

Please read the Site Guidelines and refrain from titling threads "Help!".

It isn't that you "must" give Quinoa and Flax seed during a molt, it is that quinoa and flax seed are recommended, along with egg to help your bird get through the molts more easily.
Offering baths and/or lightly misting the budgies can also help ease the itchiness.

The "brand" doesn't matter when it comes to quinoa or flax seed.
I buy quinoa at Costco. I buy Flax Seed at GNC.

Be sure you always rinse quinoa very very well before cooking it for either yourself or your budgie.

I never give my budgies sunflower seeds.
