For a few days I thought the yellowish colour on my pigeon's beak was discolouration. I can't see well close up so have been cleaning him in front of a 10x magnification mirror to clean his beak and nostrils after a feeding. Today while cleaning him, with a warm water dipped q-tip, I looked a little closer at this discoloration and noticed that a piece/layer of beak is missing!

My guess is these layers don't grow back like human fingernails. Is my pigeon in pain due to this? If so, will he always be in pain (due to possible nerve endings being exposed, etc.)? Does this make the rest of the beak vulnerable to lifting and coming off? Is there any remedy or homemade 'prosthetic layer' available that can be painted on that is non toxic and will dry/cure?

Why don't you get some reading glasses? You can even buy cheap ones in the drugstore. You need to be able to see things close up.
Hard to know what you mean without a picture.
