Default Female Budgie's cere peeling?

So, I was misting both Sunshine and BlueBell today and everything was going alright until I noticed that Sunshine, my female lutino had patches of blue appearing on her cere.

I'm a little bit concerned since I didn't think this was a thing that could occur in budgies, other than it being a sign of cancer.

should I take her to the vet? Any advice?

Was her cere brown and scaly?
If so, she was in breeding condition and her cere is now going back to it's normal color.

Would you please post a picture of her cere?
A full frontal shot, clearly focused and taken in natural light would be best.

Yes, her cere is brown and a little bit scaly i think. I tried to take a clear picture but my camera kept focusing on the back instead of on her, so it might be a little bit blurry.

She is currently in breeding condition.
The brown scaly part of her cere will flake off and the cere will go back to the non-breeding color and will look much smoother.

Thank you, I was just a little bit concerned since she recently went through a stressful first flight and thought that it may have been caused by stress or something.
