Hi, I have a Black Star Hen, Mi'Lady, who is an older chicken. I don't know how old because the man I bought her from lied to me...but that's a different story!! 3 days ago, my son and I noticed her flopping around and unable to stand. When we picked her up and examined the leg it was clearly broken (it wobbles around) and has a mark on it like a scrape. Not sure, but I believe one of our grouchier hens yanked her out of the nesting box and she had gotten trapped between the perch and the box. We put a splint on her leg and put her in isolation to help her relax and heal. She has sat in the nesting crate and not gotten out of it since in these 3 days. Mi'Lady's eggs had been really bad for a while before this. Very thin shelled, crumbles on touch and sometimes shell=less. We thought it was due to stress of being with an overbearing rooster (who is now gone). But, now that she has broken her leg, what are the odds that she will ever lay again? I realize her body will put it's resources into healing that leg, but will an old chicken ever fully recover? If we put her back in the flock, is it likely that grouchy hen will continue to bully her? Anything you could offer would be appreciated. Thank you!!!
