You can try to crush them to smaller pieces and if they happen to be reduced to powder, you can sprinkle it on their main food or even make a mash with veggies.
To improve feather quality, you can simply supplement your budgie's diet with egg food. This is even recommended when budgies are moulting alongside flax seeds and Niger seed, for example.
As for the mineral block, I don't know which brands you have available in your country, so I can't be of much help.
This is something that you can easily reach a conclusion on by comparing the components on the mineral blocks and see the differences between brands. If you want a professional opinion, then you can consult an avian vet about this.
Besides a mineral block, your budgies should also have access to cuttlefish bone.
If you haven't done so already, please check the detailed information on the stickies at the Diet and Nutrition section.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
