    If it's hanging off her butt, it should be no problem to cut it off. I believe that the blood feathers are on the wings of the bird. I haven't heard of anyone having problems with trimming up the hiney area of a chicken. You could bath her, and then use a blow dryer on the low setting to get her dry. I would probably keep her in overnight just to make sure that she was dry.

    I had that trouble with some of my chicks. I used a warm wash cloth and just wiped it off I also use a old soft toothbrush with the warm water works good and they dont get to wet
