    Oh, I DO know how you feel. Last summer I rescued 15 bantams....ALL of them had terrible leg mites. I had to vaseling all of them, every few days......there didnt seem to be a strong enough soap for me, after slathering all those little yukky legs!!

    OKay, dumb question but how would I know if my girls have mites? Can you see them, what are the symptoms?

    Thanks!
