Here is a riddle for you that 80% of a kindergarden class got that only 17% of the staff got. PM me the answer.
What is greater than God, More evel than the Devil, The poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it you will die?

If by stubs you mean little white hard pinneedles that somtimes have black on the end depending on the color..then she is not sick but is growing in new feathers and may be going through a molt. It is crazy but these liltte pinneedles open up into feathers! I hope that is it, othewise it would help to see a picture or a better discription..

Let us know!
