Ducks and Red Mite?

Having just had to blitz my chicken sheds for red mite yet again it set me to thinking. I've never (touch wood) had a red mite problem with my ducks. Have I just been lucky or don't the little beggars like ducks? They've definitely liked my chickens this year.

If I understand it correctly, Ducks aren't hosts to red mite because the little blighters can't get through their feathers.
Like you Bodger I have never had them in my ducks
