Default Unusual splayed legs

Hi Everyone! Im here again asking for help..

i have my parakeet which is turning 3 weeks now and this little buddy of mine is suffering from "splayed legs" but its not the usual splayed legs that most people see in the internet when they search for birds splayed legs, my case is it seems that left leg is splayed out wide open and the right leg is splayed aswell but its on the other way around, sorry i dont have photos yet, but its something like this... Consider that this is the usual splayed legs / \ mine was / / i really hope You get what im trying to picture out. My question is.. Should i treat it with the same treatment they use when chick has a usual splayed legs? Or should i do different way of treatment? Hope u can help me with this, i need to fix this before my baby chick grow fast. Thank you.

I will upload photos whenever i get a chance to take.

Even though the baby's legs are both splayed in the same direction as you indicate, using the recommended treatment as soon as possible should help correct them to the proper position.

If you are using the makeup sponge method rather than the "taping" method the chick isn't going to be able to move around the way it could using the "taping" method so please pay close attention to make sure it's being fed and isn't sitting in it's poops.

You may have to work on moving the legs to the proper position in increments depending on how severely they are splayed. Check them after 4 or 5 days to see how they are doing and adjust the treatment as needed.

I did try the taping method, but it seems didnt work, the chick was not able to sit properly, unlike the sponge.. Yes chick cant move properly but sponge look better than tape, and i add a stick (popsicle) in the chicks feet to align the legs, coz sponge is not enough. Example photo below. Do u think its okay? Btw, i always clean the cage and change paper towels everyday.

I'd rather use the tape method that FaeryBee mentioned. It is cleaner and easier to adjust, and I've seen very good results with that.
Good luck with the chick!
By any chance could you share a picture? I'm really curious since I've never seen this // kind of splayed legs, I saw /\ but never to the same side!

Edit: whoops nevermind, you were faster than me! I can't help but laugh with the popsickles, that's really smart! Poor thing looks like a waterplane though
