Hello again! It's been a while! A lot has happened the past year.. I'll have to update later.

I've come searching for help here because my precious cockatiel, Brody, has a strange issue with his beak. I just noticed it today as I was feeding him and Belle. It looks as if he has a "human" like rash on the bottom part of his beak. It's red and a bit flakey. It's currently covering maybe a third or less of his bottom beak. Any ideas? I've never had this issue! Any help would be great. I will take a picture when I have better light tomorrow morning.

Thank you!!!

Any possibility of it being scaly face mites?

No, it's not scaly face mites, the beak doesn't get red with it and it always starts around the part that comes out of the face. It could be an infection so, if I were you, I would take him to an avian vet.

Welcome back Meghan, I was wondering where you went!

I would definitely post a photo as we would be able to help better with it. ^_^
