One of my black spanish chicks has some bald spots and her stance is wider then it should be, is there something i can do to help her?

How old? Do you have pictures of her stance or the bald spots? Is she just slow to grow in her feathers? Here is some info about splay leg in case she has that:

Leg bone deformities such as Varus deformity can turn legs inward while Valgus deformity can turn legs outward. Here is some reading:

The 2 pictures below are of chicks with possible slipped tendon. The bottom shows valgus deformity.
