Subject: 4 day old chick, dislocated leg?

I have a SS chick that hatched on Saturday 6/22. Have kept momma hen and chicks in the coop until they got a little bigger, let them out for the first time on Wednesday afternoon 6/26. At night during lock up, had to put momma and chicks in the coop, as they were laying on the ground. I discovered the chick has something wrong with it's right leg. I checked it out closer this morning 6/27. Leg does not feel broken, but it is turned around completely. Foot still faces the ground, leg points directly backwards. Chick was perfectly normal prior, no assisted hatching. Not sure if momma Orp stepped on it or if it fell off the ramp or ??? I'd hate to have to put an otherwise healthy chick down if it is fixable. Kept chicks with momma in the coop today.
