Default going back to seed and veg

Hi to all,just wondering if anyone else has had this trouble,i got my birds onto pelleted food with very little trouble at all,they seem to enjoy it,but i had 3 out of my 6 birds kept getting poop caught around there anal feathers,so i had to keep washing it off,which stressed them out to much,they still got fresh fruit and veg and millet sticks,so there veriety was still on going,another thing i found that it was harder to tell what there poop was telling me about the birds,so i went back to seeds and fruit/veg,now where all back to normal,i do understand the amount of value in the pelleted food but for me and the health of my birds,i will stick with the old fashioned way,thanks for reading and any replies,peter.

Had you completely eliminated giving your budgies a high quality seed mix in addition to their pellets?
We never recommend that seed be completely eliminated from a bird's diet unless specifically advised by an Avian Veterinarian for an individual bird..

Even when you use pellets in a budgie's diet, each bird should always be getting 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of a high quality seed mix every day. This is in addition to having fresh vegetables.

The seed ration is split between morning and evening feedings with pellets available in the cage 24/7.

Yes they still had seed available to them at the afternoon feed,as mentioned previous,the reason i stopped it ,is due to the large amount of water they consumed ,for the pellets,there poop would stick to there feathers and didnt take long before it went dry,so i had to keep washing it off,so,not wanting to stress my birds any further i changed back to seed/veg/fruit.

How about trying offering pellets once a day, and removing after an hour. Feed everything else you do the rest of the day. Interesting observation. Are these standard or English budgies?
