    I just helped a turkey that had a sticky membrane hatch. It has no feet. I am going to have to put it down in the morning because it can not even hobble around. I was just wondering if anyone else ever had that happen?

    I have never hatched turkey eggs. So, you are saying it has legs with no feet on them? Can you take a picture of it? Aww, that's too bad. Sorry.

  5. My grandfather raised a turkey with no feet. The little guy was cute as can be and grew to be dinner later.

    I kept him for a little while cause I have seen birds do amazing things and I thought that maybe he would make it to butcher age but I can see that he can not. I was just curious to know if anyone else hasd ever had that happen. You can barely imagine my surprise when I saw him with no feet.
    Thanks for the replies.
