Customer Question

I have a pet turkey. Seems to be unstable on its legs and tends to keep walking backwards. Takes a few steps forward then several backwards then sits down. The only change in daily routine was he might have been ruffled up by another turkey? No external wounds from confrontation? I have video but not sure how to attach here. Any clue as to what could be going on would be great fully appreciated
