I noticed one of my chicks that hatched today has super floppy toes and a wide stance. Does it have splayed legs? I’ll do a splint and a tape booties tomorrow if necessary.

Yes they are splayed.
The toes need boots like this to correct them

And the legs are also out side ways so may need this

It also needs lots of grip on the floor of the brooder, sometimes when it's slippery it makes the splayed legs worse
