Just added 6 new americana chicks to our flock. One of them had its umbilical cord wrapped around its led. They are 2 days old and it’s having issues with walking or applying any weight on it. Is there anything I can do to help it recover?

Welcome to BYC.

Did you hatch these chicks or buy them?
Can you post a few clear photos of this chick?

Even better would be to upload a video of the chick to YouTube and post a link to it here.
A video of how it's standing/trying to move around.

The toes...do they move?
You might have to straighten them out with a chick shoe.
The chick seems to be able to move the leg when holding. But unable to use it for walking. From what I have seen the toes stay closed like in the pictures.
