    You may want to post a photo so we can see what her neck looks like. If the feathers have turned rusty colored, I would imagine it 's from bleeding.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you. Have you examined the bird? Checking for any kind of foreign substance or wound would be the first step.

    I would let her swim in a tub of lukewarm water, rinsing the feathers, and take a good look.
