tying his wings was a mistake, you need to make it so he can not get out of the breeding area. he sounds like he hurt himself trying to just get around. untie him and keep him isolated and calm and see if he just has a sprain, if he does not get better take him to a vet or better yet take him there ASAP. not sure what kind of setup you have, but tying a birds wings is cruel. you will have to feed the babies if he can not. how old are they.

he will need to be locked up and not let out to fly, make sure the babies are eating and drinking, you can introduce the hen when he is feeling better, introduce them gradually and just watch them to make sure all is well. tying the wings is not what you want to do....don't do it again.

This is what I do if I were you lock her in with a male and let them settle in it...Make sure she will not try to fly or not able to fly for her leg or foot to heal...I had a hen that her leg was totally split broke and I just let her stay in my training basket for good two weeks by herself...She is not able to fly or even flap her wings, all she can do is hop to the food with-in few steps away and drink some water...Her leg heals and the bone attached back together...I know how you feel about keeping the bird in the loft/coop so she won't fly back or get out by accident but taping their wings will do more damage than flying away ain't it...I won't suggest to clip the wings or pulling their wings, those are just some torture to the bird...

DO NOT TIE :( THEIR :mad: WINGS ANYMORE​

Bosh try to pick up the hen and see if you can move her leg...See if she twitch and how bad is the twitching...If she kick or pull the leg back, she will heal...But try to to fly and as you know they are going to use their feet/legs to land so that will put more strain on her painful leg...
