    I would guess that's evidence of a very bad case of scaly mites. It needs treatment. Use a miticide, then coat the legs with vaseline or RedCote a couple of times a week afterward.

    Do a search for Scaly Leg Mites.. You need to separate her and any others that may be showing signs and treat them!
