I have a white breasted turkey that is about a month old and I noticed a few days ago one of his leg appears bent or twisted. He almost walks on the side of his foot and I checked it out and it seems to me the lower bone of his leg that connects his foot to his knee is side ways. I thought maybe it’s just a dislocation but he walks on it normally and he doesn’t seem to be in pain. What is wrong? Should I take him to the vet?

It looks like a slipped tendon to me.
