Pink Goffin Cockatoo

My 6 year old Goffin Cockatoo has suddenly turned pink on her chest. She used to be white with pink undertones, but her chest feathers have turned downy instead of like regular feathers, and they are all pink. She eats a pellet diet with dried fruits, vegetables, and nuts added. I've also noticed that the feathers on her back between her wings are nappier than usual, as if she's been stripping them with her beak. I've not noticed any plucking behavior. Can anyone help?

chewing feathers

I don't know why the feathers would turn pink but before I put my african grey on an organic pellet diet he chewed and shredded his feathers constantly. I switched him from colored pellets to Harrison's and after about 6 months he no longer chewed his feathers. I do think you should have a vet check him out just in case its a medical problem.
