Is she been kept at a strict solar schedule? A low protein/low fat diet with lots and lots of fresh (dry doesn't count) fruits every single day? Is she having enough out-of-cage and one-on-one time? GCCs, contrary to what most people who acquire them believe, are not easy birds to keep. Their diet needs to be maintained at low protein/fat and high fiber/moisture and they need an INORDINATE amount of personal time spent on them...
