    I've read here that red on the legs can be hormones.

    Some breeds of roosters at peak maturity and hormonal levels can develop red in their legs. I seriously doubt that this is a result of mite problems unless you have been dealing with scaley leg mites and the legs are physically damaged by the infestation.
