Baby turkey shaking under heat lamp and injured leg

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I checked on my baby turkeys this morning as usual and one had its leg caught between the wall and an enclosure (I have no idea how!) It was luckily still close to the heat lamp and was eating some food the other turkeys dropped near her. I immediately freed it and brought her inside. I can move her leg without her protesting but she seems to be unable to hold it in place. Also, I placed her immediately back under a heat lamp, fed her as much water and food that she wanted and she is shaking like a leaf under the heat lamp. Any help or advice is GREATLY appreciated. I'd hate to loose her sad.png

She is actively seeking out the water
