Post: Sudden plucking

    So my Cockatoo Zoe, who we rescued three weeks ago,
    suddenly started plucking this morning (or overnite).
    When I got up this morning there were small feathers all
    over her cage and when I examined her to see where they
    came from, she has a bald patch on her chest!

    Granted we have not had her very long at all, but it was
    my understanding that she has never done this before. She
    is a very sweet and I would like to think, happy bird.
    What are the factors, if any, that would cause sudden
    plucking?


    Thank you!
