I'm not sure if this species is semi claustral or not. If she is fully claustral then she will not want food, but if she is a semi clausteral species then she will. I feed my ants crickets bought from the pet store (live) and then I freeze them to kill them and keep them in the freezer. Also, make sure to never feed your ants things from outside in general. They can have deadly pesticides on them. I'm not sure if your queen can survive with two broken legs. I had a queen with a missing antenna once and she raised a colony of 20 workers before I accidentally left them in the sun. :? Bad Idea
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Odontomachus are semi claustral. Give her a day or two to adjust.
