    Are you keeping the wounds clean? Do you have a crate you can put it in? Put it in the garage or somewhere to make it easier to keep it clean and treat its wounds. Antiboitics would help if you can get them. Ask you vet, we get injectable antiboitics for our chickens from our small animal vet. Just try to keep it from getting infected. At least put the food and water near him if he is struggling to get to it.
