    Ok, so I've dealt with leg mite before, but this is the first time I've had breeds with feathered legs, and don't know if this is leg mites, or simply puffy scales because of all the feathers. No scabs, black stuff, just raised scales ONLY on foot and two toes. This bird is with 3 D'Uccles, and their feet are a tad raised, but again, I don't know if it's just because of all the feathers... here are some pics.

    It won't hurt to treat in any case.
