    I have a baby turkey about 10 weeks old.
    His leg started to splay like a baby chickens sometimes do so we took him to the vet. It was a nutrition issue, but he's the only one who is afflicted. Nutrition is now balanced, but his leg bone is very weak. It splays out to his side and he can barely walk. I need ideas for how to make a support system for his leg so he can get around. Any help is much appreciated. He is too big to use the standard splay leg bandage treatment.
