Question hormones promoting beak growth?

i have had leon for 2 years now and he is one of those buggies that you never have to clip his nails because they naturally wear down. recently him and 2 other birds have become very hormonal, leading me to remove both my females from my room (which is saddening me..). i have gradually noticed that leon's nails are getting longer and thicker. before this he got a brown patch on his beak, which didn't seem to affect him and eventually disappeared. now he is getting brown patches on his nails and his beak is growing quite long. it doesn't seem to bother him, but i don't know if i should bring him to the vet to get it trimmed, and if i did, would i have to keep bringing him back? it seems as if the beak and nail growth are connected and i would like to hear your thoughts

this is the brown patch on his beak that came and went

Brown patches on the beak (and over growth) and nails can be a sign of fatty liver disease, if that is the case the brown patches are actually bruises. It may be something else but I would get it checked out by an avian vet asap.
