    Same thing happened to me, as with mine Crackers worried me
    sick did all was done by vet. then a breeder told me to get
    her a male that she was wanting to breed. so I did and the
    plucking has stopped and her mate and her are doing great I
    have 4 eggs that she is setting on now.... thank goodness
    that was all the problem was. You didnt mention the age of
    your bird but mine are 5 and 7 yrs old. Hope this helps
