Flakey beak, first make sure plenty of veggies and fruit and I know your taking care of that and maybe a cuddle bone next time you go shopping and hung on the side of cage. In the pm message I told you about natural wood perches and only out of bird safe wood , the right size for your birdies feet. Different sizes available for your bird is best so feet don't get sore from standing on the same parts of there little toes and feet all the time. You know how wild birds are always landing on different size branches well it's the same for parrots so they don't have foot problems. It is common for some species beaks to get a little flakey during molt and I don't think there's anything for you to worry about. If your bird can get about a 3/4 wrap around its perch that's a great place to start with figuring how big around the perch should be. A natural uneven one can be obtained at a good pet store. You will see your BIRD wiping his beak back and forth on the wood perches and the cuddle bone and that should take care of beak . Oh don't forget about the wood toys.
