I've given mine tiny amounts (they were stuck to bread) and I've seen it as part of budgie mixes and recipes so I assume so.
However, I believe they are very high in fat (they feel oily and we get sesame oil from it) so I would only give it as a treat.

I got this info from the master breeder uk website Kaz.
The oil seeds include rape, flax, niger, poppy, sunflower, hemp, sesame, and peanut. These seeds in addition to supplying energy they provide essential fatty acids, namely, linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic.

yes they're safe

Sesame seeds are a good choice as they are high in vitamin A

If you go here and scroll down under the 2 Boxes of safe/toxic lists there is a section of Safe Seeds from Garden plants they're also listed there
