    It seemed to be injured, it had trouble "cackling" and it's eye was a little messed up. I thought it was going to be ok, but now I'm not sure where it is, I'll have to go and look for it. My question, is there anything we should be doing for it? Or just wait and see if it heals?

    I would bring her into the house, put her in a carrier (with food and water), and see what happens. She could have internal injuries that are starting to overcome her, or she could just be really bruised and need some time to heal where she doesn't have to deal with other birds, search for food, etc.
    I had my favorite silkie run over by my young mustang and she didn't make it. It was very sad.
    Hope she'll be ok.
