Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible

Personally I would recommend a high quality pellet feed such as Harrisons Pellets or Lafeber Nutriberries. Seed diets such as trill tend to be deficient in many nutrients. I will forward you a budgie caresheet courtesy of one of my colleagues, please read through it and let me know if you have any questions :)

Let me know if you can open this? I hope it answers all your questions, feel free to message again if you need any further help or advice.

If I could just trouble you to leave me a rating using the stars at the top of the screen. It enables Just Answer to credit me for my time. Many thanks.
