    What do mites look like?

    Can anyone show me a picture of a bird foot with mites? My tiel's feet are always cracked and dry. He also scratches particular orange spots continuously. At first I thought it was just dry skin, but now I'm not so sure...

    oh that is gross
    a good avian vet can give ya something to put on the feet to get rid of the mites. i have heard that ya can wipe mineral oil in the feet to get rid of them. but now sure how true that is. a vet is the better choice
    Life without birds, is not a life I could live

    Awww, that poor poor bird, I feel so bad for him. That looks just terrible. Those are some freaky looking mites, nasty.
