Thank you for your advice.
I was concerned about the two white circles also. I tried to search for some information and photos online to see if others had it but couldn't find the ones that were similar to my bird.
The last two photos were from 10 days ago and the first few photos were from today.
I will try to book an appointment as soon as possible! I have been thinking of taking them to their first avian vet app.
Could there be anything else I could do in the meantime if it really is scaly mites?

From most of the pictures, it looks like normal peeling to me, it's not uncommon for the beak to have the occasional superficial "dent" that is shaped like a circle.
If the last two pics are older, then most likely your girl was more rough while playing or rubbing her beak against a rough surface, like a calcium/mineral perch, for example or while playing with one of her toys, possibly a chew toy.
Have your girls been bickering more often? At times when beak fighting they can inflict those little circular dents on the beak and with time the beak heals itself.
The first ones were taken today.
The last two photos (the photos with darker lighting) were taken 10 days ago.
Ah okay that's a relief. I tried to search for some similar peeling on the beak online but I couldn't find any so that concerned me.
Oh I see. She does play quite a lot... Rubbing her beak on the perches and ladders, mineral blocks, etc etc.
Yes at times it does seem like my two girls are bickering more... Whether it would be over a treat, food, their favourite swing and sleeping spot. They usually get over fighting over their swing sleeping spot for a few minutes but recently, it's definitely been longer.
I really do hope that her beak is nothing too serious..
