Unhappy What does feather plucking look like?

So, as ever, i'm feeling over-protective of little Chewie and on changing her newspaper today I noticed a couple of normal 'adult' feathers that she'd lost. She's dropping loads of fluffy baby feathers, I was thinking this was probably normal as she's only 3 and a half months old and she doesn't look bald or patchy. Could she be pulling out these feathers because she's bored? I don't really know what to look for and i'd hate to think of her being sad and pulling her lovely feathers out!

God knows what i'll be like when she has her first molt. I'll probably have a heart attack! Lol :-)

Thanks for any advice anyone can give :-)
