From the AAAP Manual
"This condition affects young broiler chickens and turkeys. There is lateral rotation of the distal tibia on its long axis, which results in lateral deviation of the lower leg [Fig. 1; Tibial Rotation NCSU]. Rotation is usually unilateral and can approach 90 degrees [Fig. 2; Tibial Rotation NCSU]. Morbidity is low (less than 1% in broiler chickens, but occasionally up to 5% in turkeys), and the cause is unknown. Tibial rotation must be differentiated from slipped tendon, because the tendon remains in place in tibial rotation."
