A week and a half ago I took off Danni's cast, but she still couldn't walk on the foot. It must not have been healed. The toe bent at a right angle still and she continually fell down when trying to walk. We cannot keep a lame chicken, so at this time Danni's future was not very bright. Danni appeared to be depressed from being alone without her fellow chickens (chickens need other chickens), so one of Danni's twins (there were 3 identical hens) was moved in with her, which greatly raised her spirits. I named the twin Chloe. The broken toe was taped again for another week and a half.

And finally, the good news!! Today we removed the make-shift cast again. The toe is still slightly bent. It healed bent off to the right. But she can walk!! That is all that I was hoping for. She's not too sure of her foot with the cast off, so she'll most likely spend the weekend inside learning how to walk on the foot without a cast. (I've dealt with chickens in my house now for 3 weeks, another couple days will not bother me more than I've already been bothered. I've cleaned my bathroom every night, it's become part of my daily routine.)
The broken toe is the big center toe on the foot on the right in this pic. You can see the toe isn't straight like the one on the other foot. It's bigger than the other big toe, as it didn't heal straight. She's not putting her weight on it much, you can she she's relying on her other foot to stand. But she's not falling over anymore, so I think she'll make it after all.
