Ive tried researching this online before, but didnt come up with any info on it... i would be interested to see if it is ok too.
Ive seen port lincoln parrots (like an australian ringneck) eat them, as well as singing honeyeaters - we have a pomegranite plant in the front garden - so im pretty sure it would be fine for budgies. But i would like to know for definite before i advise it

I think they are fine. Many people give them to their birds.

perhaps you could give just a few ( 10-15 grains ) to the budgies. see which of your budgies ate them. wait for a few days. if all is fine and no strange behavior or change in poop, is noticed, serve larger quantities.

Its not about them not eating the fruits.I think the pomogranate seeds may be harmful.I dont want to risk feeding them something which im unsure about and then having them fall ill

The seeds of a pomegranate are the fruit. That's the part you eat and feed to the animals.
