Default Budgie's Beak Green

Today my bird's beak started to turn green. We've been trying to give him some foods in addition to seed such as lettuce, orange, apples, and kale, and he will eat most of them. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's one:



He's been eating lettuce, so that might be the problem and it's just stained his beak a little. Nevertheless, I want to make sure.

Is it green from the veggies? My budgie beak gets really green from fresh veggies and red from strawberries.

I agree, since he's been eating lots of veggies lately, it's normal for his beak to be a bit stained It'll fade eventually!

Also, you shouldn't use sandpaper covers for your bird's perches. The rough sand can actually cause sores on their feet as well as a disease called bumblefoot Natural wood as well as perches of varying textures, sizes, and diameters will all contribute to healthy feet!

Be sure to check this link out for examples and more information:

Your little budgie is a cutie.
I'm glad you will be removing the sandpaper perch covers and updating your budgie's cage. What is his name?

If you haven't done so, please be sure to read the information in the following links as well:

His name is Sam because we got him on the Fourth of July. Right now he's eating lettuce off the top of his cage. This is kind of a bad photo because he gets shy when I take out the camera, but here he is:
