hurt baby turkey leg- advice please! - Page 2

Thread Starter 

Cheepers (turkey's name) is doing better all the time.  A couple of days ago, it started putting its foot down when it walks, though it has a definite limp and doesn't put weight on it when standing.

 

(Heat lamps make taking good pictures so hard.)

Just an update.  We had to put our baby turkey down a couple of weeks ago.  It was walking around fine but when we moved it to a bigger pen, it started limping again and finally stopped walking altogether.  I think it was that his leg couldn't support his increased weight as he grew.
