Do you have iodine or betadine? That can be used to disinfect and hide the wound. The ointment can then be applied over it. Do you have a rooster or older hens who could have pecked her? Feed her a bit of egg, and some feed with water added to get her to eat and more fluids into her. If you can place her in a cage with food and water inside the coop or run after a day or two inside, she won't be away from the flock long enough to have to re-introduce her.
got some betadine solution, and a cat carrier she will fit into

they\ve been in with the main flovk for a month now with out ant isses, but di have 2 roosters and 2 broodies, rooster took off after feral cat too

she\s standing up and complaing and pruning, a little harder to hid injury with here as she looks buff orpington but all white

Betadine and triple applied, she's now in cage and eating plain scrambled egg and talking to the 2 month olds that are here cause to small to put in with main flock yet
Sounds like you have things under control. I hope she recovers well. Feathers usually grow back from a similar injury in a month or so.
she is calm and stopped shaking finally, the 2 month olds escaped their cage to go see her though lol, think i will keep her here in the cage as was pretty bad injury , she's being quite friendl to the little ones here and they will be ready to be introduced about time to reintro her to the flock

Thanks for the help

so far so good, was worse than what it looked like, but it's slowly healing, she's isolated but can talk to the 2 younger ones that can't be introduced just yet. but on the mend without infection
