Looks like Pauline was right about Ella’s impingement. We kept her inside for two days, getting broodier and grumpier. We also gave her a couple of brief sessions on the lawn, to make sure she got plenty of vitamin D. (And to give one of us the chance to clean her cage out … ) She was still a bit stiff in the leg, but showed no sign of any real problems, so we’ve put the divider back in the main run and moved her into the bach. This way she can see and talk to the others, but has a nice snug house of her own with a really low little perch to step daintily on and off. We’ll put Claire in with her at night to try and keep her a bit happier. Fingers crossed she keeps improving!
