    Can you see his tendon on his left leg - it has no skin/ covering. What do I do about that - is it a slipped tendon? I don't want to hurt the little chick trying to put it back in place if that isnt what it is.

    OMG you need to go ask about this in the injuries thread. It looks like both legs are open and damaged! Do you have any idea what happened to the poor thing?
