I couldn’t find anything from Google about it so I wanted to ask here. I’ve noticed any time my chin slips some fur she’ll end up eating it. Is this normal?

It's pretty common, it's not good for them though it can cause hair balls so try to not let her if you can. My best guess is it's an instinctive survival strategy, eat up any fur slips so predators don't find them and sniff them out.
