Subject: Young turkey with bent leg

Hi -- hoping you can help us sort out what is going on with our new turkey. She is a few months old and we have had her for a few weeks. She is our first turkey and was sort of gangly and bow-legged from the start, which we thought maybe was normal for a turkey. But in the past week I've noticed that one of her legs looks a lot worse than before -- sort of twisted to the side. She does not seem in pain and is eating fine, but she is a little more off to her self than before (we have chickens but she's our only turkey) and is roosting on top of the coop rather than inside on the roost, which has us suspecting that she is having trouble roosting. I am sending you pictures and a video by email.

Thank you so much for your help! Our birds are free range egg-layers and we just want to take care of her and keep her comfortable, but are concerned about her getting to a point where she is in pain.
