Hello, I have an Indian Ring Necked parrot that was given to us about 1 year ago. Now for about the last 2 months, I've noticed some changes in his beak. At first I thought that it was cracked, then after watching it for a few days, saw nothing different with the beak or any eating habbits. Most recently, the last 2 days, the very tip of his beak is now almost white. THe upper half has not changed colors at all and is still a reddish orange color and looks good. Other than the fact he thinks he's a chicken and clucks and scratches like one, he is or appears to be very healthy. Any ideas on this subject? Please let me know.
