    Hello,

    Is the leg in a place where you can splint it? If it is, you could buy some vet wrap, and get some help to set the leg, then splint the leg with something that will hold the leg still, maybe a dowel rod that is about the size of her leg, and wrap it snugly with the vet wrap.

    I hope you're able to splint it. I would keep her small sized crate with some clean wood shavings and food and water nearby.

    Good luck with your little bantam,
    Sharon
