He has an orange beak.

他有橙色的鸟嘴。

他 is the correct simplified Chinese.

Not really, 他 is correct due to personifcation (animals/characters with human quality). Just like in english, we refer mickey mouse as "he", not "it".

Native speaker here, typed 橘色 (jú sè) and was rejected, I personally use 橘色 way more often than I would use 橙色 (chéng sè) in real life. :b
