leg mites come from wild birds. people. etc just like every other disease. only symptoms "I'VE" heard of is raised leg scales. i guess it could cause blood if they start picking at it. ways to treat -Dump their legs in olive oil. vegetable oil. or some sort of other cooking oil, spray their legs with PAM (this is the non toxic ways). Toxicish ways that i hear are used. with no problems but some people think its toxic (i dont know if it is or not). and dont like using it. -Spray WD40 on the legs, or some other type of spray on oils. Motor oil, etc...

Basically. just use oil to smother/kill the mites

-Daniel

PS. May take a couple of times to treat
