You have emu-birds with problem of leg-bending & you don’t know the name of disease.
As far your limited history about birds, one can suggest it can be ---------------
* It is seen in intensively managed poultry farms where chicks are deprived of sunlight.
*Due to deficiency of either vitamin D or phosphorous, or in some cases both
-------Curled toe paralysis: -
Birds tending to sit on hocks with toes curled inwardly-cause riboflavin deficiency.
# drugs cant be advised untill it (disease) is detected,its just for your information.
I would suggest getting vet urgently for exact examination & detect the condition to save rest of birds in emu farm.
