Subject: Weak straight leg issue - advice please

I have a 3 day old chick, that upto this morning has been absolutely fine, then this morning I noticed one leg under it's body with normal resporces, and the other out to the side, this leg is straight, toes pointed, and doesn't seem able to flex foot, or bed knee itself. Don't know if it has been stood on, chick is very vocal, tried hobbling the legs as in sprayed legs, but the straight leg just stays straight, and it falls over, so I then created a hammock type chair for it to get the weight of it's legs. Any advice or suggestions please. I have no vets locally that deal with chickens
