Red face Really bad pin feather sheaths...

Ever since I got Shelby a few weeks ago she has had very bad sheaths around her neck and head... I work them during scritches, which she loves, but they seem like they aren't getting any better... I looked and that's what they are. They are a bit better than when I first got her, visually she looks a lot better from her molt. Any tips to help her shed these easier? She has finally taken to bathing in her water bowl so I'm hoping this will help.... She didn't like the sprayer I tried a couple weeks ago. So I'm glad she decided to hop in the water.

Pop her in a travel cage in the bathroom and run your shower as hot as it will go so the room steams up. Should do the trick
