She is 1 year old but was injured as a half grown chick. I nursed her back to health but she is crippled on one leg and hops on the other. She does lay an egg every day. I have kept her away from the other hens who pick on her. But now I need my brooding house freed up so I am giving her away. I don't think you should put her with other chickens but she is gentle and sweet.
