Is this just ugly legs or scaly leg mites?

Got these little frizzles from a girl at a swap last weekend. Their legs both look like this. Is it just their coloring or do they have mites?

Looks like the may be a little dry but it could be the start of mite also... Good maintenance will keep the legs looking good... Unfortunately I slacked off this winter and two of my girls have leg mites. My own fault... Good idea to keep vaseline rubbed into the legs at the least once a week.

They look like just color to me too. Be sure you do a 30 quarantine though, in case of any other pests or diseases.
