    Is there any hope for sprattal leg? He or she still gets around and eats and drinks.

    Statistically, no.
    Some people have had success using a hobble method to bring the legs or the hocks back together. The only problem with this is if the issue is genetic, then there's nothing you can do.

    Interesting thing happen. Two birds had this leg problem for three or four days and completely recovered. Walking fine now.
