Default Beak Colour change photo

Hi, i did a search on the forum and haven't seen any discolouration like what I'm seeing but hopefully it's nothing. One of my budgies beaks seems to be changing colour slightly. It's like a greenish band that's the original yellow above but a bit paler before. I've linked a photo too. I know he's a bit older so it may be an age thing. It doesn't seem to be like the liver discoloration I've read about but can't be sure. We've had him about 4 years but he was a rescue that appeared randomly out in a warehouse area so he could have been a couple of years old even when found. He seems happy anyway, still very active and chatty and eats well

Thanks!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Your bird (name?) is very handsome!
Thank you for rescuing him from the warehouse area and giving him a loving home.

What type diet do you feed your budgie?

Healthy Diet for your Budgie

It's hard to see the cere well in the pictures you posted. You can try posting a full sized picture rather than a thumbnail attachment.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

I would recommend you see an Avian Vet (or an Exotic Pet Veterinarian who has experience dealing with small birds if there are no Avian Vets near you) to get a well-birdie check-up to see if there are any underlying conditions which may need to be addressed.

I also suggest you remove the wooden dowel perch in the cage and replace it with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.

Pressure Sores

The information in this link will give examples of better options for perches:

Hi there and to the forums!

Your boy really is handsome - I'm so glad he has a new loving home with you What's his name?

I can see the beak in the photos and it looks normal; budgie beaks vary in color from a greenish horn color to yellowish to orange. As the beak grows and sheds, there may be some variation in color, which is normal. To me it looks perfectly fine, but as FaeryBee mentioned, full-size photos would be best to confirm.

It's great to have you on the forums! Please be sure to read through the links provided above by FaeryBee as it will be helpful on staying updated on everything you need to know. If you have questions after doing so, please be sure to ask as we'd be happy to help!

We hope to see you around.

Cheers
