Hey racing_gurl 07,

My cockatiel has a purplish beak too, but he was born that way and its been like that his whole life. Has Spike always had a bruised colored beak, or did you just notice it?

Could he have gotten it stuck or could something have smushed it? Sometimes Peaches's beak gets dry and peels some. I asked my friend about it (she has raised tiels her whole life) and she said that it's alright when that happens.

Good Luck!!!!!
