this is the chick asleep

hi i wonder if you could help me,
i received a baby chick born yesterday, its legs bend at the sort of elbow joint but its feet are pointing upwards and touching its face, it seems to be most comfortable laying on its back with its legs in the air.
it cant stand on its feet but can move a little on its elbows but is very unbalanced, it twitches its feet a lot seeming to be trying to move them but is unsuccessful.
i wondered if you could help me and give me any suggestions on what i should do? sorry i havent explained it very well.
thankyou so much

Since Dr B can not examine your chick, he can't determine if the legs can be splinted or if the bird needs to be put to sleep. Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to determine the best thing to be done.
