    I have the same problem with my male turkey. We woke up one morning and his leg was just turned sides was.
    It doesn't look like it's broken. It is swollen and purplish in color. Now we have a male and female turkey and it only
    happened to one of them. We had them in a pin with some little chicks that we had gotten at the same time. So I am
    having the same problem that y'all are having. So is anyone has answers please let me know. I sure would be open
    to what ever y'all have to say.

    Sound like slipped tendons. How old? Are they broad breasted? What are you using for bedding?
