HERE IS WHAT I PUT IN THAT EMAIL:
Lydia,
Am not quite certain but am guessing that if injury really is at hip
joint it is "straddle legs" also called spraddle legs or splay legs.

If this is the problem it can be repaired with a hobble brace
which is just a piece of tape connecting legs just above ankle
level.
But if injury is at hock joint then the Achilles tendon is out of
place and needs to be put back (this happens if chick has hard
time kicking loose from eggshell)
Another thing that could be wrong is a twisted tibia (the same bone
found in KFC "drumstick")

A closeup photo of this chick's leg could help me understand
what to tell you.
Photo can NOT be posted on this website but you can send directly to my email address or posted on a photo storage website
with a link posted on my website.
