Need a little advice…Turkey Poult, Club Feet

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Two turkey poults hatched today, both with club feet. Will vitamins be enough to fix it or should I attempt to make them "chicken shoes" out of clear tape? Any Advice is greatly appreciated. Thank You.

I guess no one knows, what did you decide to do.

I made shoes for both poults, propped them in a paper towel doughnut, in a bowl. Fed them by hand and gave poly-vi-sol drops. One had a full recovery, straight feet within 24 hours and no more flipping over. The smaller and weaker one made no progress and was having difficulty breathing and swallowing so I culled. Something I haven't done before and hope I never get used to. Thanks for reading!

Sorry about the one, but one making it is good news, it's good information so others will know what to do.

I will if I don't get the blue red bronze I am looking for from the turkey eggs we have to hatch. Likely we will have to cross back to blue to achieve the colour pattern we want.
