As you're new to the forums, be sure to read through the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to ensure you're up to date on all the best practices for budgie care.

If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your little budgie around the forums!

Cheers
Hi, thank you for the welcome/advice!

Are you certain he... she is a girl? I heard that a beak turning brown can be a sign of illness in male birds (sometimes even indicating cancer!).

This may seem strange but I'm not sure exactly when or how long it took for the beak to change colour. I casually glanced over and was shocked when I noticed the change in colouration. I'm not sure if it happened gradually which made it harder to detect or if it happened very quickly.

Thanks again!
