I think he will survive his wounds. If you have some betadine, you could coat his wounds with it. Neosporin ointment would help, but probably will attract dirt. Wattle injuries can be painful, but not fatal. Just make sure that he is eating and drinking well. If you have other roosters, watch to see that he isn't picked on.
