    We are raising broad-breasted white turkeys and one of them has become increasingly twisted-looking. She is not walking well and her neck is pulled back against her body. We are going to butcher her asap if this is not a disease that would transmit to humans. Does this condition sound familiar to anyone? Should we cull or eat?

    I'm thinking that is some sort of disease, but I am not entirely for sure.
