    Hi, i just had a similar problem with one of the chicks i hatched a couple of weeks ago. I taped her legs close together with fabric medical tape, leaving enough in-between space for her to learn how to walk, and left it on her for two days. the medical tape was good because the adhesive was easy to take off or adjust and didn't stick too tightly to her legs but held well in the center. I hope this helps, good luck.
