Sick turkey, unsure of reason. (Picture)

We have two adult turkeys, a Sate Tom and a Red Bourbon hen. We also have ducks, geese, peafowl, chickens, etc. We live on a small farm.

I have never had health problems with the Tom, but when the Hen was younger, she and a group of peafowl were sick with something. It wasn't mycoplasma, but it was cured.

Right now we have 6 peachicks and two poults (Bronze) in the pen. They were raised separately until about 2 weeks ago when they outgrew my sister's apartment.

They were healthy and alert, but as time progressed, I noticed something was amiss but there were few symptoms and now one cannot stand and the other is still walking around but just has that look of "I don't feel good" and if I am correct, a few of the peachicks have it too. He cannot lift his head (It's kind of curled downward and away from himself)

His (I have no idea if they are male or female, but whatever) feet are cold

They are on gamebird grower.

Any ideas? He looks dead but he is not.
