SweetandSavory - do you have any more detail? what do you mean a pad? Did you keep the baby with the momma?
Ours came out of an incubator but if I was you I would take her and a friend or 2 in to a brooder (bathtub works for us!!) you'll need to monitor that she's getting food and water.
My husband took the plastic top of something (like a sour cream container) and cut out a triangle just bigger then her foot. We then took bandage tape (sticky but not too sticky) and taped her foot to it. Make sure its in the position you want it before you tape. It would only last a day or so before she pulled it off but between that and the vitamins I added to the water she's walking just fine now.
However with all that being said, I caught it within the 1st 12 ours of life but I would still try it with yours.
Hope this helps
