If you want your budgies to eat pellets exclusively (or with seeds as just a treat), then you can try the following schedule to switch them over. It repeats every 4 days.
Days 1-3: You give them seeds for about an hour in the morning and in the evening, but the rest of the time, you only offer them pellets.
Day 4: You give them seeds the whole day, particularly if you see that they aren't eating much of the pellets.
If you only want them to eat pellets as an accompaniment to seeds, then you can put them in egg food or bake birdie bread with the seeds. Here is a recipe: https://talkbudgies.com/recipes/20347...ird-bread.html
