    I came outside this morning to let the birds out and found my turkey laying under coop. After picking him up I found his broken leg. Its broken in the ankle area. The skin is damaged and he will not bear weight on it. I wrapped the site in gauze and athletic tape to keep it stable. He will eat and is confined in small cage to limit movement. Any suggestions?
