it’s so crazy looking to me! The feathers grow out of this little flap of skin that lifts up when she puts her crest up

I wonder why it is that lutinos specifically of all the color mutations have that bald spot?
Pretty sure it has to do with breeders not being careful while creating the mutation. We just joke that she's a little bit inbred lol

Here's what came up on Google
"The Lutino is a color mutation which is technically a genetic defect. In order to get more Lutinos, the birds were often bred to related birds, so many Lutinos are very inbred. The most common bald spot is the back of the head."
