Subject: Chick chair question

I have a 4 day old chick that had a difficult time hatching. It got stuck and we ended up helping it out in the end. It hasn't been able to walk since day one. One leg was swollen after 24 hours and twisted slightly to the side. I did some reading and thought it could be a slipped Achilles tendon. We were not able to put it back in place. We can feel it go back into place but it won't stay there (maybe because of the swelling?). We have had it in a chick chair for 2 days where it has been eating & drinking normally. My questions are how long do I keep the chick in the chair? If the tendon won't stay in place, will it ever?
