    I have heard of people using bandaids as splints to help straighten them out. You might try that! Hope he/she gets better!

    No, I would try to bandaid it first and see how it goes, if mom keeps picking at it then you can deal with that then.

    You will need to take him away from his mom to treat him. He will have to put in a brooder (or a box) with a heat lamp. There is a link in my signature line that has info (with pictures) that may help you.
