I'm certainly no expert on this, but from what I've heard that looks like splay leg. You can fix it by making a hobble splint with a large band aid and some gauze. Correct me if I'm wrong and also do some research before trying this.

Splay leg, you need to make a splint of sorts that forces her leg closer to each other, you can do this by using a peace of tape or even a bandaid. I assume they were most likely incubated, the slippery floors of the incubator can often cause this.
