    We have a female 9 month turkey. In November, something tried to get her. It tore the ligaments in her leg joint and really messed her up with other holes and scrathes everywhere!! We tried to doctor her ourselves, but had to take her to the vet. We had to give her injections of pencillin and the silver nitrate on the wounds. She has survived her ordeal, but only walks on one leg. She has her bed in the house at night and is one of our children. She has started laying eggs even. She hasn't been with the "Boys", so we don't figure they are fertile. But, we will see if she will sit on them. If not, they will go in the incubator. The vet said we could use neosporin on the sores also. She is one in a million.
