Parakeet beak too long

No, you need to have this looked at. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to rule out fatty liver disease or illness.

If you feed your bird a seed diet, then it is likely fatty liver disease. I did not know about pellets with my first budgie and it died of this.

You should be feeding your bird 70% Harrison's or Roudybush pellets and only 30% healthy treats or seeds. No colored pellets or cheap pellets full of sugar and chemicals.

You can read our Switching Birds To Pellets article that was written by an avian vet if you need help with this.

Either way, you need to take the bird to an avian vet for a beak trim and exam. If it is not a disease, then you will need to provide some toys with Popsicle sticks and other things that it will chew to keep it's beak trimmed.
