I've used some of those "hot hands" hand warmers in a sock nestled in shredded paper or a towel for an injured bird before.

Keep her someplace dark and quiet tonight. Offer her food and water but don't be surprised if she doesn't eat much. Measure the water so you can see how much she's drinking.

Birds have had worse and come through just fine so try not to worry too much. Post how she's doing tomorrow. I'm sure others will chime in with suggestions.
It should be without pain killers. Right? This May have already been answered. I haven't read all the post. I just thought that it was supposed to be without.

Hello again folks! Its been a few months and i wanted to offer a thank you to all and give an update. "Rosie" is all healed and doing wonderful!! Amazes me how resilient these birds are. The flock will not accept her, i tried over many times to bring her in supervised while she was healing. On a plus note, my ducks tolerate her, mostly ignore her while they are roaming the yard and she has found companionship there. At night she comes to the front entryway and waits to be let inside, then goes to her "kennel" for the night. Thank you all again!!
