    Hi- we just got baby turkeys 2 weeks ago and one if them cannot walk anymore. It lays on it's side and let's all the others walk on it. We brought it inside to be left alone and noticed it won't curl it's toes. It will move it's legs and wings, but won't walk.

    It's eating and drinking just fine, but keeps opening and closing it's beak with no noise.

    Any suggestions?? Thank you!
