Just wanted to share this in case anyone else needs what seems to be a high quality seed mix. It's Living World Premium Budgie Mix. Got it from Amazon. I got my budgies off the expensive junk from Petco with it.

They're really picky, so I was expecting problems but they dug into this stuff almost immediately and now they look a lot more intense when they're eating lol. They love this stuff. No more mess around the food dishes either. They eat every bit of it including the fruits and veggies.

Plus the bag smells like fresh papaya when I open it, and I almost want to taste it myself. The fruit is even still moist.

Not affiliated with them, just excited that I finally found a good mix that they actually enjoy. It's not expensive either.

I like that seed mix, it was developed by Hagen, they have done extensive research on many aspects of avian care check out their research institute here https://hari.ca/hari/research-facility/

An excellent choice of seed!

The link provided by Cody is great!
I'm glad to have learned more about the Hagan Aviculture Research Institute. Thank you.

That was a fascinating link, Cody - Coming from a science/university background I read a few of Mark Hagen's research articles and they all seem to be thorough, well researched, and ethically done with minimal impact on the birds they study.

The articles about nutrition in particular are very illustrious and if anyone else is debating clicking that link, I recommend doing so as it explains precisely the reason that we on Talk Budgies encourage a diet centred around pellets with veggies supplemented with seeds!

Anyways, glad your budgies like their new food

I will check out the food. I also like that the toys on their website have safety notes of things to keep in mind (such as ropes fraying and toys that could become wet and grow mold). Thanks for sharing!
