    I posted earlier this week about my little turk having a gimped up leg. I thought it was broke but someone told me that it could be double jointed. Well yesterday the turk was walking fine and I went back to check and it was limping again. Do you think the vitamins will help? I know they have to have strong legs to uphold their body. And do I give the vitamins to them every day?

    BBB or Standard? I'd be tempted to wrap the leg (not so tightly it can't bend leg at tibotarsal joint) in the `correct' position. Vitamins and preventing the poult from `running around' can sometimes alleviate the gimpiness.

    Good luck!
