    or maybe it is just a result of having weird feathers coming out of their legs.

    Seems to be associated with the area where the shaft comes out of the leg.

    They are not all affected, usually only one................then sometimes another

    NOTE, the "RIRs" I have never ever show blood spots on legs...

    hence my question as to whether this is a 'feather-leg' issue and NOT mites at all.
