I am sorry to hear about your budgie. Psittacosis is certainly treatable with antibiotics, and an overgrown beak can be maintained by a trained professional. I am not very familiar with hypertrophy.

I think hypertrophy can be caused by high hormone levels (?) which might also explain the "breeding behavior".
Is your budgie male or female?
