Default Any advice would be appreciated

My chins fur has looked like this for a while. She seems completely fine otherwise, and I believe it might be the humidity.

The photo is blurry, but if it's just tuffs of fur you are talking about she is likely just shedding (in chins it's called priming). How often are you giving dust baths? Also you can try combing her with a fine toothed comb before the dust bath to help loosen the fur so it comes out easier in the bath.
