Try putting him in a deep coffee cup. With some paper towel in the bottom.

You will have to feed and water him. But a day or 2 in there will let him strengthen his legs and get better balance.

I had this happen once.
I nestled the chick between a couple of padded blocks of wood in a shoe box
inside the brooder. forcing it to remain in an upright position. after about a day, he gained his equilibriam and was fine after that.
you can put food and water within easy reach for it, but don't be too concerned if he doesn't eat or drink for a day.

btw feedman, I like the picture of the royal palm tom. I used to raise them..
