Do you notice ANY feathers missing on her body? If not, she is simply preening which is normal. I have a 5 year old pearl female the preens her feathers A LOT!

some times she will because she picks out a big feather and she will kinda yelp and i tell her no and not to do that but it does not help.( but yes its really both)
Sometimes my old cockatiel would do this. Pluck a feather and give a little squeak. but it was not consistent. My suggestion would be take the baby to a vet and make sure she doesnt have mites that is causing her to be itchy.
