Tip of Kiwi's beak turning lighter, almost white. A problem? (Picture included)
I noticed it today. It looked fine yesterday. She's acting normal. Maybe cleaning herself a little more than usual and she's shed some feathers in the last week, but I don't see any bald patches. I assumed she was just moulting, but could be wrong.
Any ideas what might be going on? Something to worry about?
Thanks, Starling! I'll keep an eye on it still just in case, but that puts me at ease a bit. I'd never noticed that happen on either her or Ben before.
That in combination with the shedding feathers had me a little worried, because she just moulted already about 2 months ago and it seemed weird that it would happen again so soon.
Oh and for a day, she had kind of wet-ish droppings that left a green tint around them as they dried on the paper, but that went away the next day and they're back to normal. That was maybe a week ago.
I think I worry about my little feathered babies too much sometimes, but I'd just hate for something to happen to them if it can be prevented.
