    I just found it and it has punctured thru the skin. It is been bleeding and clotting. They will be processed within two weeks but my concern is bacteria. I have isolated her and cleaned it up. Do I need to wrap it or what?

    If it was me, I'd butcher it now. It's bound to be at least the size of a Cornish game hen.

    That way you put the bird out of its misery, no problems with medical care and you've salvaged a broiler.
