Subject: HELP: 7 day old chick spraddle leg

Can you help us? A kindergarten classroom hatched chicks. The teacher helped one out of the shell. Knowing that I was a doctor (like that helps with baby chicks) she asked me to look at it on day 2. I researched and it looked like spraddle leg of both legs and also bumblefoot of the left foot. I started a bandaid on day 2 of life and then moved to coban wrap. She has been in the hobble for 5 days now. She can walk but the legs are still in the wrong position. I put a sandle on her foot and that looks much better. She is eating and drinking well. I was careful not to be tight with the wrap and although the skin looks ok without irritation she seems to have some wasting where she was wrapped- the legs look skinnier than the other chicks. Can you help? Not sure what else to do?
