    The only thing I can suggest is a vet. With both legs broken, unless you know how to set tiny chick legs, it will not survive without being a special needs chicken for the rest of it's life....that means you have to do everything for it, for as long as it lives...I have no idea on how it happened unless it is something genetic?

    Best to you and you little one!
