Re: Beak wear question

I felt all over her beak when I took the pictures a few hours ago. No weak spots on either upper or lower mandible. I ran all over both mandibles with my fingers looking for cracks and didn't feel any. Along the edges where the beak is lighter in color are rougher than usual but don't feel week. The very tip of her upper mandible is not as sharp as it was but no damage I can see and she shows now discomfort and still enjoys her beak rubs. I am off work the next two days so I'll keep an eye on her for the next 48 hours. I cant see any change in her behavior and she is eating, climbing, and preening as usual so I am fairly certain she is in no discomfort. Thanks for the reply, if I will update tomorrow morning.
