Subject: Turkey chick leg problems please help!

Please please help me save our little turkey chick who we have grown very fond of. I feel Im at the end of the road and will need to end his life for his sake as he has no quality in his life. When he was born 2 months ago one leg was twisted outwards but he didnt seem in pain and limped around quite happily. Lately however his other leg seems to have gone bad and he cannot put pressure on it. He now uses his wing bless him as a crutch to get around. He is eating very well and drinking and growing but I feel his quality of life is terrible as he cant move around and peck and forage like the others do. Since reading your forum last night we but him in a chair made from a tea cosy with his feet just touching the ground without weight on them and are feeding and watering him by hand. I took some photos last night of his legs from side and behind and we are all hoping you can tell us how to fix our dear little friend up so that we dont have to have him put down. Hoping you can help us out and if you need anymore information or photos please let me know. I uploaded the photos here http://s1173.photobucket.com/user/stevegreengrass/library/Turkey%20leg%20problems

Kindest Regards
Steve, Anna and our little turkey chick named Sparticus
