    I don't think she knows how to tip her body right. I just cleaned her off the other day - and it's back. Should I clip a bit around so there isn't much to stick to? If so, anyone have pics for me?

    I've read that some people routinely trim the butts of the fluffier breeds. Just be sure you don't cut into the blood supply of any feathers. I've read the feathers only have blood supplies while they are still growing, and it's easier to see this from the feather's underside.
