    I have 13 eastern wild turkeys. 4 weeks. Tuesday one started sitting like on the back of its legs then as the day went on couldn't balance very well and would flop forward/backward/ on its side. It gets a little better then a little worse. It still eats and drinks. Any suggestions to a cure?

    It sounds like it is suffering from a vitamin deficiency. Try mixing some vitamin supplement in their drinking water.
