    It was completely fine night before and I let it out next day and it was like this. I worry it was an accident in the coop

    If it is perosis, which I think it is, it will get worse and it will get to the point that nothing can be done. :( I have seen this in peafowl where they are fine one day, then next day lame like your poult. If I were you I would get some turkey or game bird starter and some vitamin b complex as well as some niacin (regular niacin, not the time release of flush free). Then I would weigh the poult and give it niacin at 25 mg per pound of body weight orally 3 times a day.

    Of course I could be wrong, but switching feed and giving b vitamins will not harm it.

    Is niacin same as BComplex? I look it up and can find anything that doesn't say BComplex...
