    Is she losing feathers, or just growing and her feathers haven't caught up yet? Chicks go through some weird and ugly phases as they grow up. Birds (especially roos) look pretty moth-eaten as they become "teens".

    You can check for bugs if you are worried, but she is probably fine.

    Good luck.
