Turkey Question

I was asked a question about turkeys limping. I have never had turkeys so the only advice I was able to give was to buy them a cane.  If you have any advice or information for the following question, please leave it in a comment. 

I have 4 bronze turkey babies. They are in a warm location eating and drinking. Two of them have started limping and I noticed that each has one swollen knee. Any ideas on the cause or cure?

How old are these babies? My first thoughts go to what their bedding is. Newspaper could be causing them to slip around, not providing enough traction. I'd try shavings or mulch. If they're on shavings or something similar, I'm not sure what else it could be.
