Subject: Chick with leg turned in

My chick has a leg turned to the inside. It appears that it may have been broken from breeder who sent my neighbor 25 chicks (I live across the road and took the chick in to separate and hopefully rehab.) There is some swelling at hock area and it is already calloused. She is eating and drinking and otherwise appears normal. When she stands her leg turns in and wing comes down like a crutch for support. I'm not sure if this will eventually correct itself or if I should splint or make little hobbles
