My female budgie recently started molting, maybe two weeks ago. Today I let her out of the cage, she tried to hop to my hand but fell! I felt AWFUL! (She is okay now and did not get hurt). At first I thought she broke her wing, but, I took a closer look, and all of her flight feathers were gone on her right wing! Is this normal? I attached a picture below of all of her molted feathers thus far.

They don’t look pulled out to me so that’s a good thing. I’m not sure if it’s normal or not so hopefully someone will be along to help!

If all of the flight feathers are gone it is possible she got her wing caught in something or panicked and let them loose in an attempt to "escape"
That was my thoughts as well
