Customer Question

Good morning. I have just "woken" my two Hermans. They are both very well ,eating and drinking one of them seems to have grown a longer beak during hibernation. They are 11 and 9 years old I think my feeding regime is ok. Would a vet be able to sort it out. Many thanks. Lucy Holmes.
