The best thing for healthy plumage is a good diet and a solar schedule - and lots of patience because it takes two whole years for them to grow all new feathers. These biscuits have soy (real bad for animals) and egg which is NOT a natural food for parrots (bad cholesterol). If your worry is that she is molting, you can always add a bit of methionine to her diet which is also good for their liver.
