    Hi I my self do not own any poultry but my Aunt and Uncle do and I am staying with them for a while. We 18 baby turkeys at the moment (still a few more left to hatch) and 4 parents (1 male and 3 females). But here is where it gets interesting. We are in Madagascar. So there are no vets, no one else who is really raising turkeys. So I found this site and joined. Seeking help because some of those 18 babies have some interesting problems but the one I am most worried about is the one on my chest. His/her leg has gone completely paralyzed. The other problem is the 4 adults are really brother and sisters. So we are working on exchanging all of the woman out. But the turkeys did what turkeys do which is reproduce. So if any of ya'll have had any similar problems maybe ya'll can help me out. Thank you.
