144 chicks arrived today from a hatchery and one chick has a wing injury. The wing hangs down and the end of it where the pin feathers are growing out is bright red, like there's blood under the skin. What can I do to help it?

I think it may actually be bruised. It seems to have blood under the skin. I tried wrapping with gauze all different ways it each time the chick would flop over. Then I noticed that it's now draining a clear liquid. I sprayed Blue Kote on it and put her back in with the chicks.
