Update on Princess Lay A: It turns out she had a torn ligament in her left leg, she couldn’t grip her toe. Not much I could do but wait for her to heal so I’ve been giving her vitamins, live and dry worms, boiled eggs, etc. She is standing and walking more, and started going outside with the other chickens again this week, is even perching at night with them instead of sleeping on the floor. She‘s even getting in the sand pit by herself for a bath! She‘s done molting, her tail has grown back and her wings have almost grown back.

So you were able to see a vet and find out about the torn ligament?

I'm glad to hear she's improving:)
