Subject: pullet with injured leg

One of my chickens injured her leg. It goes backwards from where it attaches to her body. If she tries very hard she can move it forward some, but it does not bend, so will only go so far. I have tried splinting, using a sling with her suspended; but have not had good luck. She flaps and flaps her wings until she gets out and exhausts herself. (I feel like I'm torturing her when I am trying to help.) She gets around by just flapping her wings and using the one good leg. Should I just give up and keep her in the smaller coop with a couple of companions? Thank you for any ideas.
