The claw /foot structure is commonly miss-understood as they are so very different.

They will shed /flake skin and as a result from time to time their claws will appear 'dry.' But, that does not mean that they require special treatment. At most a very tiny amount of pure, natural, veggie based oil can be applied to their feet like once every other month at most. Remember that the amount is tiny.

my birds are regularly steamed when i shower and their feet ae fine. Also I play "got your toe" a lot as they seem to like to hate but love the game.
