    You could do a couple of different things. You could cage her inside the coop (with food and water) with friends to force her to rest the toe. Also you could take some vet wrap and cut it into 1 inch strips, and wrap the foot separating the toes with at least 2 layers of wrap which would splint the toe. Or you could leave her alone, and make sure that she is eating drinking, and not being picked on. The toe may heal crooked whichever method you use, but that is a pretty common thing to happen.
