Hello - thanks for your help, we're new to raising turkeys! We have 6 little ones, they're about 6 weeks old. We've been letting them out in the yard with us, for short periods, and yesterday I noticed that one of them was hurt. The best way to describe it is that she looks drunk! She'll walk a step, then fall to the side, like her leg gives out. She'll kind of put her wing out a little, hop a little, and then tip over again. I looked really carefully over her leg, and wing - no obvious wounds, swollen, etc., No tenderness, she was fine with me feeling carefully. Her leg looks straight, and in place. Wing looks the same as the other wing. I have seen her drink and eat since then. Any suggestions? Thanks!
