I have a 5 day old chick with one splayed leg with an extra toe on that foot. How do I fix it? She can get around pretty well using her other leg, but I want her to be able to use both legs as she grows up so she won’t get picked on.

Look up ‘hobble for chick with splayed legs’ on Google. There are quite a few sites providing instructions for making a medical tape ‘hobble’ that will help them get around, as tendons on the loose leg(s) are given the opportunity to tighten up!
Best wishes,
