    i have a 7 month old turkey hen and she’s walking like her feet hurt. I can’t see any injuries and the other two aren’t walking like that. Any idea what is going on?

    Probably landed wrong and it's strained or sprained.

    I agree with @oldhenlikesdogs , probably just sprained or bruised it's feet or leg.

    Ok so should I separate her or will this fix on its own. First time raising heritage turkeys.

    Separation will cause panic and the risk of further injury. Try to keep them from getting up on stuff if possible so it doesn't continue to hurt it.
