Sounds like she is doing well on her own...I would be very concerned about other chickens pecking at it though, is she out with the others? You might get some blue kote, or other gentian violet anti-pick treatment to discourage them. You could also give her nutritious, high protein treats to help her heal faster, such as yogurt, washed cottage cheese, small amounts cat food, low-salt fish, etc....
