I hope this post is in the right area, please let me know if it is not. I have tried google and searching the forum, but could not come up with pictures or much information on what might be on my cockatiel's beak
Recently she has had a growth on her beak. At first I thought it was food stuck on her, but it has been there for more then a few days (maybe a week?). It is very odd shaped and seems to be growing straight out on the outside of her beak with little bumps.
It seems like it could be mites or mycosis from what this website said:
"Spongy, Brownish growth on beak, cere(nose), or feet- tiny mites, mycosis of beak"
I also found this post, which I think looks similar:
She is over 15 years old and has lots of life left in her! If you can share any information on this it would be much appreciated.
If more pictures or information is needed please let me know.
It is on her right side of the beak...the left looking at the picture. It also is so long it seems to go on the inside of her mouth. It is hard to get a picture from the side because her feathers are covering most of it.
