    one would need to know the circumstance to assess the situation..what are you feeding? is it drinking plenty of fluids? it could also be a vitamin/mineral deficiency. In that case a supplement would be good to give.

    I am feeding turkey starter. The chick eats and drinks well. It was fine until this weekend. One "knee" joint appears twice a large as the other. It is not improving...
