    I just wondered if you've recently moved her to another area of the house?? My miligold
    started plucking after I moved him to a different room so I moved him back to where he
    originally was and he has not plucked since. He was 13 when he started plucking but
    just the different room made all the difference. Have you changed any other small
    things? Different furniture? I've noticed that the smallest change to you and I is
    sometimes a HUGE change to the fids and they don't adjust well. I picked my brain for
    almost a week before I realized what my miligold's problem was. Think of any little
    thing you've changed, maybe that is part of the problem but then again maybe it isn't. I
    would definately go to the vet just to be safe :) good luck ... keep us posted!
