What is his normal food, and what are bird crackers, is that something you make or something you buy? Is he acting normal other than the change in eating?

Don't take away the bird's only food source while you are determining what is wrong with him as he could easily starve.

Hi! If you want your bird to learn to eat pellets instead of seeds, you may want to try sprinkling a few on a shiny surface and letting him chase them around like tiny toys. That got June to eat them.
