Is this the beginning of molt?

I noticed a couple of days ago a small patch of feathers raised up on her back just before the tail. Today the spot is larger, I suspect it’s her going into molt? It’s a first for both of us lol

That is odd.
How old is she, in months?
Did you take a look under there?
She’s 13 months
I did take a peek at the area and her skin is not red or anything, no sign of mites/lice/fleas, but some of the feathers are very short and look almost broken off
