I don't know much about beaks. Do they peel? Ollies seems to be peeling on the bottom, can you guys see it in this picture?
Also, does it look overgrown a little?
Sorry for the million questions, just concerned cause there is a flaky part on the bottom. He's eating normally and doesn't seem to be in pain when using it.

Beak does not look overgrown to me. The beaks will peel and flake as the bird ages. If a beak appears abnormal, cracked or mishaped, one should have the bird examined by an avian vet. Your bird is adorable. Looks totally sweet too.

Thanks! He's only 4 months old so it sounds like his little beakie is just growing :)
I will still keep a close eye on it though.

Both of my amazons have peeling beaks. I understood that to be normal.
