Subject: Marin found hanging by hock in coop

One of our 2 month old Marin's was found hanging upside down by her hock from an "s" hook in the coop yesterday morning. She survived this but we don't know how long she was hanging. Obviously she was flapping around because the water was completely empty and the wood chips were bare on the coop floor below her. We got her down and placed her in a separate cage with food and water. Her foot was swollen as was her leg. It was sticking out yesterday but by 5 pm her leg was under her and she was trying to move/stand. Upon picking her up I did noticed that her hock is still swollen. Should I make a sling or continue to let her rest? After reading many of your posts I wonder if its the Achilles. I don't think it's broken because she is trying to move. Any thoughts?
