Not sure what you mean by changing color? Baby parrots beaks ususally get a little darker but stay in the same color range. If your bird is eating a poor diet, this can not only effect color but also hardness of beak as well as nails, bones, feathers and skin.

If it has been more than a year since your bird's last checkup with an Avian Vet, now is the time to have him checked for infections both viral and bacterial as well as basic bloodwork to see how organs are functioning.

The best diet for parrots of all sizes is Harrisons organic pellets which are Avian Vet endorsed and are the best on the market in the US. Organic is needed to keep dangerous chemicals and dyes out of your bird. I've been feeding it to my two Amazons for a very long time, and they stay healthy with good color, feathering and skin. Below is a link on how to go about changing from seeds or junk pellets like ZuPreem and Lafaebers to Harrisons which is found here. Your bird would eat the Course Grind for size, and no changes can be made until he is seen by an avian vet. California has plenty of avian vets as close as your phone book.

Beak color change

More information would be helpful. What color did it change to? How old is the bird? Age sometimes changes beak color. Beaks are like our nails and sometimes the outer layer can start to peel making the beak lighter in color. If the whole beak changed color completely it could be a circulation problem and the bird needs to be seen by an avian vet.
