Subject: Slipped achilles

My 3 week old cuckoo maran stopped using her left leg. I hadn't noticed any problems previously. The more I read, the more I think it's a slipped achilles. When I go to "pop it back in" but hold the highest part of her leg and slowing pulling her leg back (like she's stretching) by holding by the joint right a over her foot, I can't seem to find if the tendon has slipped back in. I feel the other leg for comparison. Her joint isn't too swollen; I'm pretty sure it occurred within the past few hours. I has built. Little "chick chair" of sorts. iCal wondering if I have stretched her leg as I described and now have her set up in the chair, what next? Do I confine her in the chair. Do I only keep her in it for a few hours?
Is there anything I can look for that suggest healing?
I've read as much as I can find on the net, but I'm not sure how long she's in the chair for. I have a photo if it helps.
