Hello there @tabish830...

First let me say that I don't know about turkeys, but I think they're swell!  I'm visiting from the Peafowl Department.

 

From what I do know about peafowl, this sounds like it may be splayed legs. If you do a search you will find a lot of info about this. You will likely need to make a simple brace so your baby's legs learn how they should be going.
