Spraddle leg maybe? Was it hatched on a slippery surface? Search the term here on the forum. You can cut a band-aid in half lenghtwise and hobble the legs at the ankle to bring them together to a normal position. Do it ASAP in order to get the best result. In a couple of days remove the aid and the condition should be corrected.

How would I bring the get the leg itself corrected? It's spread out like that and the chick can pull it in far enough to walk
