Bird with dry looking feet
by: The Avian Vet

Because they probably are dry. Birds need a 40-60% humidity and regular baths. Typical households are 10-20% humidity. This could be related to diet too. Finches should eat 50% pellets like Harrison's and 40% seeds with fresh vegetables and greens. It is also possible that your bird has mites. I recommend that you have your bird examined by an avian veterinarian.
