    It's been 2 full days. Eating and getting around fine. I have a batch of meat birds going in should I just take in with them to process. I planned on processing all te turkeys around mid Nov. anyways. Any suggestions?

    Hopefully someone with broken wing injury experience will chime in. I would probably go ahead with processing him unless you can get some advice on what to do about his wing. Can you keep him confined so that he doesn't get injured?

    I made a call an the advise is to process, not sure if it's going to be okay to eat. Thank you for replying.

    If there is no infection I would think that it's okay to eat.
