damaged dead non growing feather

So I have two question about my five year old CAG

I have had her for six months now, I will like to know if there is an age where they just take off with their learning and mimicking ability or age is not a factor, itís just about how much interactions she get and how much I work with her and train.

Next is she has a feather, I believe a flight feather that was clipped in the past but I can clearly see that itís a damaged dead non growing feather, its actuality just the stem, she is picking on it and Iím sure its bothering her, what to do about it, will it just fall out?

Thanks.

As soon as you begin working with her! She is plenty old enough!

Leave the feather, it will come out of its own. She has figured out that it needs replacement and therefore is working at extracting it!
