Default Different types of pellets

Hello everyone, I have a couple of questions, and sorry if this been answered I couldn't find anything in anywhere.

First has anyone had any experience with Harrison's mash? does it make the budgies dropping runny? I have been sprinkling it on my budgies pellets to get them to eat it and break their seed habits (which was a true success), so they been eating Roudybush nibbles, and Zupreme XS Fruity pellets mixed in with Harrison's mash and their dropping have been runny or maybe I'm just over reacting, they also been eating dried herb salad. I just refilled their bowls with pellets without the mash.

Second is it ok give them different pellets all the time or should I just stick with one kind? Every time someone recommend a food that is healthy and beneficial I like to try it and then I end up given them a variety of food and switch it up so they're not eating the same brand all the times. Is that wrong?

And last should I limit the amount of pellets I give them, or can I just have it available all the times? Currently I have the roudbush and zupreme available at all times as well as the dried herb salad.

By the way all 4 budgies are doing great together well except for the occasional bickering

I'm glad the Harrison's mash was beneficial for you in getting your budgies used to eating the pellets.

Having pellets and the dried herb salad available 24/7 is definitely the way to go.
I have the Roudybush minis and the Zupreem Fruity Pellets along with Dried Herb Salad in my birds' cages at all times.

You can go ahead and stop the Harrison's Mash now to see if that will make the droppings a little less runny.
Are you giving them any vegetables? If so, that can make the droppings a bit more runny as well.

It's great that all four budgies are doing great together now!

I would recommend that you not use colored paper in their cages as liners. It's best to stick with the black and white newspaper, white paper towels, packing paper or white or brown craft paper.

You can try out different kinds of pellets if you wish. Doing so will not affect your budgies adversely.
Some budgies like one type pellets while others won't eat them.
