    I just got 3 free poults and one has spraddle. I think they are like a week old, but no one else knew the age and i don't know turkeys.

    It has gotten better a little just in the 2 hours i've had them. They were on newspaper and the rest had died before I got them from the place they were.

    I know That it is easy to treat in chickens and I've done so many time, but is it the same with turkeys.[​IMG]

    I would put a band-aid splint on him/her and see what happens. I would try to treat this one like you would a baby chicken with the same thing. I've not had this yet with one of our poults, but I would imagine that I would treat them the same as chicks. Good luck!
