    I would put her in a small cage or bin where she won't be irritating it by trying to walk on it. Clean it and put neosporin on it..don't use the neosporin with the pain killer in it. I have an Old English with a cut on her foot once. SHe got better in a few days. Just keep her still and warm with some food and water. Hope this helps.

    as Chickenchic said, remove chicken from others apply topical antiobtic, a little ACV (apple cider vineger in water) couldn't hurt, seclude, keep warm apply treats, will be fine
