I've been making my own seed mix for my budgies, containing 1/2 lb. millet, 1/2 lb quinoa, 1 c hemp seeds, 1 c chia seeds, 1/2 c flax seeds, 1 c oat groats, and 1 c rolled oats. But, my budgies only eat the millet, oat groats, and rolled oats. So, I want to switch out the quinoa, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and flax seeds with other seeds they might like. What might be some good, healthy replacements?
(Just to clarify, because I know people will ask, I don't only feed them seeds. They also get pellets and fresh vegetables)

Hmm, there's canary grass seed, canola seed, red millet, sesame seed, anise seed, poppy seed, and caraway seed. Just look up their nutritional value and pick which ones you want to use, there's some I didn't say though.

I agree with zERo. I'd recommend mixing some different types of millet(like red millet, yellow millet, etc.), canary seed, oats, or whatever bird-safe low-fat seed they like:) You can check out this seed mix by FeatherBeautiful, and choose what your birds like:
