Hi Kalina,
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Didn't check the board last night because we have a very busy wildlife rehab centre at the moment, sorry that the timing here was off. Many others that visit this board can offer you better advice but what you described does sound alittle like straddle leg. The heat lamp is a very good idea for young chicks(temperature should be about ninety degrees first week then lowered five degrees every week(roughly)...this Button Quail site offers excellent info, you may want to check it out for sure. Be careful about handling very young chicks too often, they can become stressed when removed from their siblings, although this may not be the reason at all why your little guy passed away. Offer good footing for young chicks to prevent splayed legs...many suggest rubber bath mats to prevent slipping. Again, I'm truly sorry about your little chick, but also, you are being very caring to seek out information to help prevent another loss.

Good Luck!

Chris
