About a week ago, my school got a shipment of turkey poults. A couple had spraddled-looking legs. They were going to let them die but I didn't want that, so they let me take them home. One did pass away, but the other one, which I've named "Dewey", was doing fine. We discoved that Dewey's leg wasn't spraddled, but deformed- he can't stretch it out. He was starting to stand on his good leg, but now he isn't and I'm afraid he's spraddled it. When I look up what to do, I see where people attach the legs together to help, but he can't stretch the one leg to attach it to the other. I'm at a complete loss on how to help him. Other than his leg he is healthy. Any ideas?
P.S. After he's been asleep a while, he can ony open one eye. The other is stuck shut like when a dog's eye is runny and gooey. Any ideas on what that is and what to do?
