Bird molting or has feather disease
by: Tracie

Bald spots indicate disease or other health issues, but if hard white feather shafts are coming in, that is what happens during a molt.

If her head actually has a bald spot, and there is not another bird there that might be plucking her, then this is something the must be looked at by an avian vet.
