Do you think her leg is broken, her wing, or both?

well i think the wing is weak but its good and better than before but today it started to try to stand and just a minute ago it started running or jumping fast but limping its improving if only the others were alive right now its with its sister in a box and i think its helping her warming her and this one was touching it tried to feed her by moving the feed to her! and thanks for the link

Were you able to determine if the leg and wing are broken or sprained?

IF it is an obvious break then you would need to treat, but if you feel like it is most likely sprained then you might want to see how she does by herself. Keeping her quiet may be helpful

Just my opinion.
