One of my new budgies fresh from the pet store has some sort of beak disease.

Description
The beak seems larger on the bottom than it should be. Also there are scaley sections inside the beak (I got the budgie to bite me so you can see). The outside of the beak shows a crack and a white spot.

Pictures
I have included pictures in the thread but also have them here in high res.

So far i think it may be Knemidokoptes which is treated with Ivermectin. Is this what this is?

I have no idea, but someone who does will be along soon to help you. Do you have an Avian vet? Not only could he or she diagnose the beak disease, but they could administer the appropriate meds. In the meantime, I assume you are keeping the bird isolated from your flock?
BTW, those are excellent photos.
