So I just notice this white thing on my 10 month old cockatiels beak. It’s appeared within the last couple of hours out of no where. Please help me by telling me if you have any ideas on what this is because I’m really worried. Thank you
That really looks like a seed to me too . . . have you tried brushing it with a damp Q-tip? If it is, it'll probably pop right off when brushed from below.
(not-so-funny but related story: My conure had a small "hang-nail" on the side of her beak -- since fixed by the vet -- and one night it appeared like a crack had formed from it up through the top of her beak. Panic set in as Dr. Google gave it's prognosis, and we took some more pictures . . . and realized the crack was a sliver of a canary seed husk Quick brush with a Q-tip and she was back from "life-threatening injury" to "Poor baby, that looks uncomfortable". Try to brush it off -- your nerves may thank you.)
If it wound up being food, don't worry. There's no judgement here. You should have seen me the first time I fed my birds beets. I thought Rupert was bleeding everywhere. Nope! Just beet juice. I earned some grey hairs that day.
