hi...... this morning when i woke up and went to give billy some breakfast i noticed that there was like a thin layer of his beak had come off the top, he doesnt seem to be in any discomfort by it, nothing has changed he is still being noisy as usual lol,

but i am just wondering if this is normal?

i have tried getting a picture but its impossible to keep him still for that 1 second it takes for the picture lol so i gave up on that.

Its normal, the odd layer breaks away on its own, if it looks serious or bleeds is when the problems occur.

Jasper often loses small layers of beak,what with all the chewing,biting,and other rough stuff it's alot of wear and tear on a little beak. A bit like splitting a nail i suppose Smile

That's definitely normal. Look in a couple of days and you'll see his beak is back to normal.
