Crespo et al. (1999) was the first to identify the problem of turkey femoral fractures in breeding farms . It was suggested that this type of failure was the result of fatigue under daily activities as opposed to acute trauma . There are a number of factors that can lead to decreased bone integrity including ineffective bone mineralization, microcrack propagation and changes in collagen fibril orientation [1, 4, 5].
