Two turkey poults hatched today, both with club feet. Will vitamins be enough to fix it or should I attempt to make them "chicken shoes" out of clear tape? Any Advice is greatly appreciated. Thank You.

I made shoes for both poults, propped them in a paper towel doughnut, in a bowl. Fed them by hand and gave poly-vi-sol drops. One had a full recovery, straight feet within 24 hours and no more flipping over. The smaller and weaker one made no progress and was having difficulty breathing and swallowing so I culled. Something I haven't done before and hope I never get used to. Thanks for reading!
