I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please clarify where this "black stuff" is. In the beak itself, in the oral cavity? Can you upload a photo of this to our conversation? You can do so by using the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or by using an external app such as dropbox.com/
