Subject: turkey poult with curled toes

I have a Black turkey poult 6 weeks old with curling and twisting toes. from hatch he had a leg that did not come underneath him(hence the name Lefty) and we rehabilitated him by holding the leg 30 min at a time while less than a week old and then holding him up as he would prefer to squat or lay down.
his leg seemed to improve almost immediately. His toes started curling shortly after that and are worse o the leg we did not work on. I am not sure what to do. I think it is a hen and if so would remain here as a contributor to the family egg supply for the rest of her life. If it is a tom then we would like to get him to butcher weight. I do not want to prolong a life of misery so any help would be appreciated. Success to me would be getting this poult to be able to roost.
