    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 know how to fix it in chickens, but turkeys grow a bit differently and sometimes things are different between species.

    i posted there too and no one has replied.

    I taped its legs with vet wrap and it seems straighter.
