    It's been a long time since I've been on this board, but I
    do need some help if any can offer it. Skittailz has been
    molting a lot, many of her feathers never come out of the
    sheathing, so I help with that by giving her a bath and
    then breaking the sheathing down w/ my finger nails. I
    had noticed her feathers on her head were standing almsot
    erect...I for the past week thought she was just in a bad
    mood and fluffing up. I had not taken her out of her cage
    for a few days (work, new puppy, etc), I just took her out
    and she has this large white scabbything on her head. It
    truly looks like a scab but it's 100% white. I tried
    breaking it off as it's not attached to her scalp, but
    rather her fethers. She got mad so I stopped. Does
    anybody know what this could be...shoudl I be overly
    concerned and run her to the vet or shoudl I just watch
    it? She's eating normal, she has normal poops, everything
    abou ther seems fine, she's active talks all the time
