Since you are the one who is actually able to watch your budgie, to see how she interacts with her mate and how she carries on in her daily life, you will be in a better position to tell if she is happy.
Depending on personality, some budgies are naturally more quiet and shy and it's not uncommon to have a female budgie who is less vocal and that only chirps on rare occasions.
This doesn't necessarily mean that they are unhappy.
What do you mean by "whale blubber"?
Do you have a calcium source for your budgies via a cuttlefish bone or calcium block? Besides this, your budgies should also have a mineral block.
Also it's never too late to improve their diet and to encourage them to eat fresh foods. Be sure to check the detailed information on the stickies at the Diet and Nutrition section.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
