    I have had 3 turkey poults that their rt leg wants to turn outward. Is there any thing to be done?

    It could be a leg bone deformity or a slipped tendon, but I would put some vitamins for poultry in their water. How old are they, and can they walk? There is a turkey forum also that you can post on.
