    I had the same problem with a very young chick. Did it just happen? You want to try to reset it ASAP before the chick grows as the tendon will set where it is. If it has been that way a while, I would recommend putting the chick down. I had one that was too old once I found out what it was, even took him to a vet, but there was no hope of correcting it and he was in pain. Please see this thread with my experience and some very helpful BYC members:
