    I have 6 turkey poults (3 1/2 weeks old) from Murray McMurray. this afternoon we noticed that one of them is holding its leg up and out to the side. Its joint on that leg is twice the size of the other leg. It can grasp with the toes but dosent want to keep weight on it. We are brand new to turkeys and don't know what if anything we should do.
