    Could be the move/stress
    or it's molting time. Any feather loss?
    or the reduction in the amount of light, now that we are getting into Fall.

    Do you know how old she is. If she is POL she just might be erratic
    or if she is getting older ditto.

    Imp- I can see this is not going to be much help, but...

    I would not worry unless other symptoms show up.

    Good luck!
