    I would maybe re-post this in the injury section...maybe there is a brace you can make to hepl their legs go the right way..

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    you can try to use the band aid method to fix them, but I have never had ANY luck with fixing turkey legs. They usually have to be put down.
