    I noticed within the last few days that one of my 5-6 week old BBW turkey is having some issues with his/her leg. It's almost as if the leg is popped of socket, but anytime I try to take a peek, the turkey is not having it. The leg seems to twist almost all the way backwards. He/she can still hobble to the food and water. I'm not sure what I should do about it since we did get the turkey for food purposes. Is there any chance it's Mareks or is that not transferred to turkey? Any help would be gladly accepted!
