    I have noticed what I think to be leg mites on my chickens. I saw from a distanced the chickens legs looking raised—but was unable to get up close to really get a good look.

    If that is the case for the chickens, can the same be said for the ducks as well? Thanks!

    Ducks don't seem to get quite as many health problems as chickens. I suggest you work out a way to gently get ahold of your birds and look them over closely, to be sure.
