    Pictures Discolored Beaks?

    I'm sorry these photos are so crappy! My phone would not focus! But my Stormy and Cloudy birds--both blue seem to have much darker beaks than the other birds. Is this normal?

    Urgent What is wrong with my quakers beak?

    My quaker is almost 10 years old. Other than her beak, everything seems fine. It's flakey and has a purple tone to it.

    What is this?

    He gets this patch of colored “beak” that looks like his beak previously flaked off and food got under it. It’s red when he eats strawberries and yellow when he eats his pellets. Is this bad? background info: 10 months old, male, hand fed, diet is Zupreem natural but I am switching him to Rowdybush.

    This week a noticed a reddish brown mark appear on Luke’s beak. The mark isn’t flaky or anything and it looks like it’s flat and apart of the beak. You can see another section of his beak is trying to grow so I think he might have hurt himself but I’m not sure. He does come out of the cage and...
