    Pictures Beak chipping, normal?

    Looked at my girl today to see that her beak was chipped in a weird fashion. Is this a normal part of beak growth? It doesn’t seem like something urgent, no blood or scabs or anything, but you can never be too sure. Also, her feathers look like that because she just finished having a bath.
