So it's starting to rain and get icky and the vet has suggested washing her feathers with shampoo once a week for an over all clean up and then after being worked or if they're muddy, just hose them off. I always wash her with warm water so that's not the issue and we've cut her feathers about 1.5-2 inches up off the ground so they won't get majorly dirty. How should I go about drying them. Should I just towel them or do they have to be absolutely dry with no moisture at all. I'm not sure how she'd react to a blow dryer.
I'm trying to avoid cutting them off unless I absolutely need to. Being a Clyde I'm slightly anal about her keeping cleaned up and neat feathers.
