I remember when my niece was 8, she started having the mood swings from hell about once a month. My sister took her to the doctor and it turns out she was starting puberty. About a year later when she was 9 the first actual physical signs hit in.
She not only had mood swings, but feinting problems as well, dizziness etc. Now she's 11 her 'monthlies' have only just started and she's almost 'normal' again.
Diet plays an important factor here too. Might be a good idea to keep a diary of her mood swings etc. because not too long down the track, she's going to get the physical side of it as well.
Fortunately with animals/birds going through puberty, it's much quicker than humans.
