Default Kermit

So I got kermit a couple of weeks ago now from a pet store (he has only half a top beak) they said he was about 1 Yr old and from the day I got him he seemed so calm compared to my other 2 I got from the same store, whether he was hand reared I'm not sure. But I jumped straight in with training (I know its not suggested to start until he's been settled for 2 weeks) he's such a gentle soul, when I change food and water he's not bothered about me going in the cage and just sits and watches. If he was sat on his swing he'll pop up on my finger if I press up on his tummy but soon jumps back off again. Now I've been popping my hand in with millet and as soon as he sees it he jumps straight in my hand without fuss (it's hard to get him off me at times lol) how long to I keep up with the treat for sitting in my hand for? I tried putting my hand in without millet and he jumped on my hand but as soon as he realised there was no millet he soon jumped back off haha.

Kermit does not look to be a year old you can still see the baby bars on his head. It can take months to train a bird but don't rush it, just go with what he is comfortable with. I suggest that you have him examined by an avian vet to access his overall health and they may have some suggestions for feeding and may be able to determine if he was born with the partial beak or if it is due to a traumatic injury and give you a better idea of his age.

He seems to be eating fine, just takes him a bit longer than normal obviously. He goes mad on his millet.
As for his age I'm not overly sure, they said about 1yr old and I see what you mean about the stripes, but I wasn't sure whether that was just part of him if you know what I mean because his cere is very blue compared to my other boy (separate cage) who I believed to be younger but his striped have gone back fully.
Either way kermit is a right cutie lol. As soon as he sees the millet in my hand he's sat waiting for me to put my hand in the cage lol. Even had him sat on my nieces hand today (she's 9) eating the millet

Kermit is such an adorable little fellow!
Many budgies don't want to hang out on your hand without a treat being involved, so his behavior is perfectly normal.
It's great that he's calm and not afraid of you and he'll probably be easy to train because of that.
Just go at his pace and enjoy!
