    If you have something bad tasting like pine tar or Solarcaine spray, either one put on her feet may make her want to quit. Other than that, I dont really know.

    the scales on her feet are extremely raised which is an early sign of scaley leg mite... oil them (baby oil and then coat them with vaseline...
    I would get a good poultry supplement such as Avia Charge 2000 (order online through McMurry or Strombergs)... this will take care of any nutrient/vit deficiency.
