The two budgie boys you will be getting are absolutely adorable!

At first, it would be best to keep your little ones on the same brand of pellets and seed mix. If later on you decide to change for the better, you can do so by slowly incorporating the new foods.

The brands you have specified aren't available in my country, so I'm not familiar with them. From what I have read on my research, it seems those pellets are good and the seed mix also seems to be a decent one.
If later on you would like to make your own mix from fresh seeds you can do so by getting them from a local feed store.

The budgie boys are adorable!
I'm sure one of our Australian Members will be able to give you good advice with regard to pellet and seed brands.

Aww how cute ... and how exciting!

Vetafarm crumbles or Harrison's superfine are two of the top pellet brands in Australia. I haven't heard of the two you mentioned so I'm unsure of what they are like.

To start off with though you should buy what the breeder has them on and mix through the new brand gradually building up the amount of the new brand as they wean off the other.

Oh my goodness, your two little boys are absolutely adorable!

Their colouring is gorgeous as well

Niamh has given some excellent advice--I'm glad the breeder has fed them such a varied diet! That will definitely help them to be healthy and happy as they get older.

Best of luck and I can't wait to see more of them!

Your birds are beautiful...I use Vetafarm crumbles they are small and my budgie can manage them as others can be way to big plus I also give my bird a good quality seed mix to they are spose to have seed in there diet as well..What I do is put in a separate container the crumbles and then I also have another container and I have seed in it for him to choose.
