Default Little kermits beak is going black

I've had kermit for a few months now, I bought him with only half his top beak (pet store think he was born like it) he's absolutely fine in himself, eating, drinking, playing, flying around and pooping well, but I noticed his cere started to go abit crusty ( he was going though a moult at the time) so I sprayed him with a water bottle thinking it was just drying out as we had the heating on. But I noticed today how black and flaky his actual beak is now. Would you say it's mites? I'm calling the vet tomorrow as his lower beak needs a trim anyway but thought you guys might be able to give me a heads up

Poor Kermit! That definitely does not look good and taking him to the avian vet asap is the best call.

I've got him booked in at the vets in a couple of hours time, fingers crossed for him. He's eating a drinking and playing just fine so I'm hoping it is just mites and easily cured

Awww, poor little guy! Taking him to the vet is the best thing for him, it looks like he will need to be treated for mites.

That looks like a very bad case of mites.
Remember that every thing in his cage will need to be thoroughly and deeply cleaned and disinfected when he's treated.
Additionally mites can burrow down into rope perches, etc. so those may need to be disposed of and replaced if you use them for Kermit.
Please let us know how things go at the vet.

Been to the vets and we're giving him the spot on treatment for mites, got to go back 2 more times over 2 weeks for couple more drops. I've cleaned everything out whilst I had him in his travel cage, food bowls, water dishes toys and perches etc. He doesn't have any rope perches thankfully. Will I have to keep cleaning his cage until hes had his last treatment? When would you advise to disinfect his cage again?

I would do a "deep clean" each time you take him into the vet for treatment for the mites and then another a few days after the last treatment just to be safe.
