    I have tried putting him in a shot glass to bring his legs together but that does absolutely nothing to bring his feet down away from his body...i have checked out splints and am having great difficulty with getting anything to stay on also not sure if i should adress one issue at a time? Hes one of 13 begun hatching from the 2nd to the 4th of this month.

    Could be a broken leg or a vitamin deficiency. Some folks swear by poly-vi-sol but I have not had much success with it.
    Sad as it is, you may have to humanely cull that chick by cervical dislocation. Been there, done that and I hated it.
    Good luck with your chick!
