How is she doing today? Is her foot/leg back into a normal position? Is she able to put any weight on it at all? Does she even try to perch with it?

Sometimes birds crash into things, get soft tissue injuries that cause bruising and swelling and it resolves on its own. But if there's a break, that needs the attention of a vet. The foot/leg would have to be splinted in a normal position so it heals well and doesn't cause further damage. And bird bones heal quite quickly so it's not a good idea to wait a week to see what happens. A day or two is OK but no more than that.
