Picked up this little one today & she has a red mark on her beak. She's quite timid & looks like she's been pecked on the head a bit & also has a scratch/cut on her crop so I'm not sure if it's a battle scar or something more sinister. Thoughts?

Possibly pecking - or she's had her head somewhere she shouldn't :laughing and done it to herself.

Thanks Sue! I hoped it was that but just wanted to double-check in case I needed to increase my quarantine level to 'locked in the lounge room until seen by a vet'
Appreciate your time :)
