Could you post a photo? That would be best for us to help determine if there is a problem

Are you sure that the beaks aren't just stained with something?
Veggies, picking at poop, coloured wood toys could all cause a temporary discolouration.
If both birds seem happy and healthy and it's just the tip of the beaks, then I think staining is the most likely cause.

Mineral blocks, food and toys with dye can stain beaks.
If you are still concerned, please post a picture in this thread and/or contact your Avian Vet.

Best wishes
