Hello All!

My Cockatiel Sirius appears to be going through his first molt with us, among other firsts. He's been rubbing his beak a lot on basically everything he can. I see no signs of mites and his beak is definitely peeling which I assume would be itchy. We have a large variety of cardboard, wood, bark, cuttlebone and various other textures for him to use and I see him take chunks out of the cuttle bone but doesn't rub his beak on it. Are there any other things we can provide for him to try?

Thanks!

Edit: to fix the picture!

Beaks are much like fingernails, they grow constantly. Unlike fingernails, beaks normally look a bit flakey and rough.

I mean mine seem rough and flaky too lol.

Mostly just seems like he's itchy and little flakes were sticking up on his beak
