That doesn’t look normal at all for a molting bird. Molting birds will not have bald patches, they never lose so many feathers at the same time so you won’t see bald spots. I would get that bird to a vet immediately. Are there any other birds in the cage with her? Because maybe another bird is plucking her feathers. She wouldn’t be able to reach her own head to pluck so that can’t be an option. Again, go to a vet! It could be an illness causing her to lose her feathers.
