    Hi everyone :)
    My 8 months IRN, Yoko, is having some problems with her beak and I'm not sure why. Her beak seems to be discolored at the beginning and continuing it appears as the beak has another layer, I'm not really sure if I'm describing it appropriately.
    She has a calcium perch outside her cage where she sometimes sits and runs her beak against it or just sleeps.
    When she was smaller, about 5 months old, she stuck her beak between the bars. I have been with her to the vet because I wanted to be cautious. The vet told me she has a discolored beak and bleak coloring of her feather, and he told me to feed her pellets, fruits and vegetables.

    (I only have videos of her since she can't stand still.)
    If anyone could help me, any feedback is appreciated :)

    Actually, looks pretty normal to me. My IRN's beak changes a bit as he moults and breeding season approaches, only you know her, if in doubt, ask your vet.

    Thank you very much :)
    I was thinking that maybe she is getting rid of her old one and that why it looks like it is uneven. She doesn't seem to have a problem with it, so I am thinking that it is nothing and maybe I'm overreacting. I'll continue to keep an eye on her and in doubt I'll go to the vet.
