I went back and looked at your Google Drive photos and video again and I do see what seems to be a twisted tibia. You can try the "night taping method" for a week and see if you get any results.
sponge is taped to just one hock joint in order to protect both joints from pressure. Then the lower legs are taped firmly together from hocks to ankles.
As the chick fights this her own muscles will supply pressure to straighten the tibia. This treatment is is for young growing birds.
I prefer to do it at night and remove all tape in the morning so that the bird can move and eat during day.
REMOVE ALL WATER DURING TREATMENT TO PREVENT TAPED BIRD FROM DROWNING. I add this warning because I learned it the hard way. If you have more questions, just ask.
