this doesnt seem to be splayed leg. The chicks legs streach out back straight and it seems to have a problem getting them under it to stand. i have tied a string to hold them closer as if for splayed leg hopping that helps. right now i also have it wrapped in a papper towel with its legs in proper place as best i can. Hopefull this will train the muscles?

they are on vita water and chickstarter. Any suggestions please

How old is this chick? It can take a few days for some chicks to get their footing. Instead of string, you might try a bandaid.
