It is important to note that beaks are covered with skin.
Although cuttlebone and natural branches are usually enough for your bird to trim its beak, but if it grows longer than normal, it might be due to disease, and you should consult your avian vet.
The keratin that is produced by the bird’s beak dries and condenses to make it hard and durable.
The beak is made of two parts.
- Upper mandible: It is the part of the beak that you can see, and it is the part that your parakeet is able to move.
- Lower mandible: The hidden part which parakeets can’t move.
Budgies eyes have a pupil (dark circle) and an iris (white ring around the pupil).
However, some varieties like inos don’t have a dark pupil, and some other varieties like recessive pied don’t have an iris.
It is the area above the cere, and it is one of the main feature you can tell, if your budgie is below 4 months or not.
and the reason behind that is because young budgies have bars on their forehead but at around 4 months they lose these bars in their first molt.
You can see the bars in adult budgies, only on the crown which is the area that follows the forehead.
