Just come home to find these 3 feathers.
She is 7 month old. Is this due to moulting or is she starting plucking

They are cleanly pulled so I'd say it's more likely to be the beginning of a moult or the result of a fright, mine once lost lots of the tail & wing  feathers due to a night fright. I don't have a plucker but I would have thought they'd be blood or chewing evidence if they were plucked
