Don't try to switch cold turkey unless you are prepared to weigh the bird every day to make sure it isn't starving to death because they actually can, I'm told.
Pellets are nutritionally better. A good quality seed and grain mix that is fortified is not the end of the world, especially if your bird eats plenty of fresh food to supplement it.
My GCC came on a seed diet. I am slowly trying to encourage him to eat pellets by mixing them in with the seed mix, but I"m not TOO worried because he eats plenty of fresh foods.
Other approaches include making a mash with moistened pellets and favorite foods mixed up together.
