I know this isn't the best picture, but she'll only let me pick her up when she's roosting after dark. Does this look like scaly leg mites? Over the last couple days this has become very painful to her and she'll only stand on one foot and when she walks she high steps. I've been dunking her legs in vegetable oil as I heard it suffocates the mites and kills them, which is why her legs look oily here. Any ideas? Is that what this looks like? Any other treatment ideas?
