    DH went to get feed today and there was one lone turkey poult who was rejected due to leg problems. DH felt bad for him and brought him home. It is from a hatchery by the name of Abendroth or something like that. He tries to stand but it seems his legs are too weak. he is on his haunches a lot. I have given him some sugar water and egg yolk so far... any suggestions? According to the website the only poults they have are BBW and Bronze... looks like a BBW
