I'm not sure about the mutation but the orange beak is very typical of a young IRN. The beak changes color to a deep red as it ages.

He looks like a Blue Pallid (aka Blue Lacewing). I'm not 100% sure about the beak color, I've never seen one that light. It might be normal, but in case it isn't, try giving him more fruits and veggies and see if that helps. My birds love bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, apples (apple seeds are toxic), corn, etc. there's a ton of things they'll eat. I give them the corn and apples at the end because they pick those over everything else and I know the veggies are more important.

Firstly I want to thank you for the replays. I feed my bird with the food you mention and also with pellets seeds and also i give him vitamins for molting but the bake is still the same . Actually he is always in trouble with his beak and destroys everything he touches a specially his toys.Most of the time he is free and can fly around the room an can play.Teere is no visible sign of something wrong but if someone see in the orange beak bad sign please respond because i don't want to lose him .
