    Looks like she is well on her way to a great recovery. The best part is can you imagine how cool your daughter thinks you are? I bet she tells everyone this story for years to come.

    Jeaucamom - Sounds like SHE is ready to go back to the coop; however, I would just make sure that she doesn't gorge herself and stretch her crop too much. It may also take her awhile for the full functioning of the crop to come back after being streched out for so long. Maybe you can put her in the coop at night to let her roost with the flock and part of the morning for the next few days then let her "rest" herself in the house and see how she does... Congratulations.
