Heya I,m really feeling lost and very much need a bit of advice. Long story short I found one of my friends chicks out of its run after being attacked by a rat. Long story is here https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/830123/injured-chick-advice-needed-please/90#post_12346205 She is a black maran and at the time she was 7-8 weeks old. She had puncture wounds and a broken ankle which I splinted. She is now roughly 15 weeks old, is limping badly but is walking a bit but sitting mostly. She walks on her toes rather than the flat of her foot like we do I guess. My problem is that during her time at home I have waited on her hand and foot, making sure she's fed, encouraging more, puting food in front of her etc. The other day she flew from the floor onto the sofa and I knew she should be with a flock so I started taking her to the baby coop (there are 12 babies the same age as her 15 weeks ish and 4 adults) and she would roost with them, she mostly sits in a nest box because of her foot, and then I would collect her in the morning and take her home. We did this for 2 weeks and the flock have accepted her or at least they ignore her. I decided to leave her 2 mornings ago. Made sure she ate, tried to get her to drink, same again when I put her in at night. She just doesn't seem to be able to get the fact that she is now responsible for feeding herself. Today I've left her beside food and water after making sure she had eaten something and I'm worried. I know it's my fault for her be coming so dependant but can anyone tell me their experiences with anything similar ? Will she eat and drink herself eventually ? She has no problem stuffing her beak when it's placed in front of her and she is able to limp around. I,m so attached and love her so much. Thank you.
