Default How much seed?

Hi everyone,
I was just wondering roughly how much seed I should give to my budgie daily. I've been trying to add vegetables such as corn and some herbs to his diet and get him to cut down on the seeds a bit as he's almost completely dependent on it. (The pet store I 'saved' him from only gave seeds).
Oh and also, should I be weighing him once in a while? If yes, how much should a budgie around 6 months old weigh?
Any advice would be really helpful!

im not sure about how much they should weight but i can say my budgies are healty according to their active playful behavior and happy chirping. i think my budgies eat like 4-5 tea spoons of seed everyday for each budgie. it is sometimes hard to introduce them veggies only you can do is trying everyday. i gave them veggie salad everyday even they dont touch it everyday same feeder same spot, you can try veggies one by one they may not like broccoli but love carrots what i do is after breakfast i take them out of their cage and put some seeds and veggies around the room and let them find the foods like in nature. 2 of them are having veggies now but rest of them are still chasing the seeds around

I would suggest taking a look at this link for an example of a healthy diet for your budgie:
Our Budgies Diet - Cute Little Birdies Aviary


The ideal weight is 25 - 39+ grams, averaging 35, based on body size.

English budgies average is around 45 grams with their weight ranging from 42 grams to 60 grams depending on body size.

If the keel bone is sharp and protruding, the budgie is underweight.
If the keel bone isn't easily felt the budgie is overweight.

Have you taken your budgie to an Avian Vet for a "well-budgie" check-up?
It's always a good idea to establish a good relationship with an Avian Vet and for the vet to have a base-line in case there are any problems in the future. The Avian Vet will do an exam, weigh your budgie and answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding his health.

I've found a good avian vet and will book my little budgie in soon.
But thanks for all the information, it's good to know these things anyway.
