Shaky my new hen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a new hen given to me by a co-worker.  Apparently she was trampled by about 90 other hens and she was somewhere near the bottom when it was over.  She is about 12 weeks old now and I have had her for 2 weeks.  She is able to eat and drink fine but she does have some difficulty walking.  She is able to walk but she looks like maybe her foot & leg was broken.  Also she looks/acts like she has some neurological damage.  Her appearance is the same as a person with Parkinson's.

So my big question is to we let her be.(live).  When I agreed to take her I had no idea she was so bad.  I thought I would be able to put her in the coop with my other hens.  Now she is living in my basement alone in a cage.  So I'm just wondering what you all think.
