Parrot Pellets For Mice?

Parrot Pellets For Mice? Empty Parrot Pellets For Mice?

Hi, I recently got a new mouse after years of not having any (my first male mouse, actually), and am currently feeding him the seed mix I mix into my birds' food as a treat. I wanted to ask you all if the pellets I feed my birds would be a good addition to his diet. Especially the tops brand pellet, as I have 2 bags of them and my birds don't like them very much.

Here are the ingredients and analysis of the Tops brand pellets:

Looks pretty good to me, anything I'm missing?

And the pellets that are my birds' main food, tropican lifetime:

I know the corn in the second pellet can be concerning but this food is very highly rated in the bird world!
Just looking at the ingredients of the tropican it also looks like there might be some allergen concerns, so I'm betting tops is the better option.

What do you guys think?
How do either of them hold up for mice?

I just noticed the tops has cayenne and red chilis, is it safe to assume the mice wouldn't like them very much because of that?

I wouldn't recommend feeding the pellets with the peppers to mice, it might irritate them. The other one, at least at first glance, looks okay? Though I'd definitely defer to @Robin~
