I hatched a few babies and 1 ameracuana mix hatched 5 days after 21. It acts like it can't use one leg and hobbles around the best it can. I have him in a basket with pine shaving and my first 2 did fine. Its leg kinda sticks out to the side and he chirps a lot. Whats wrong with this little booger and I plan on keeping it so will it adapt?

That sounds like spraddle leg. If you look in the learning center, you'll find lots of helps for that.
