suggestions for seed mix for cockatiel

I made a seed mix awhile ago for Apollo just using every kind of seed I could find at the store at the time barring sunflowers so there's safflower, flax, pumpkin, chia, millet and maybe something else I'm forgetting. I want to add more to to spice it up a bit, are there any seeds you recommend? (She also gets TOPs pellets and a chop mix in the morning)

Re: suggestions for seed mix for cockatiel

oat groats, canary grass seed? Dried peppers with seeds, dried peppers still have vitamin A

Re: suggestions for seed mix for cockatiel

Added dried pepper (with seeds), anise seeds, and hemp hearts. Any other suggestions?
