    Type in spraddle leg and curled toes into the search bar, several people have had good luck in fixing their babies. It does take some work, so that is up to you if you have the time to do it, otherwise I would say cull, more humane than letting it starve to death. I fixed one with spraddle leg, but then she ended up with more problems than that... and got culled eventually... good luck with whatever you decide!
