How to treat wound on my hen (raccoon)

I have 2 free range hens. They are “older” and do not lay anymore so they are my pets. Yesterday a raccoon attacked one of my girls. Thank goodness my husband got to her in time and saved her. She does have minor injuries. It was hard to tell at first I thought she just lost a bunch of feathers and a little skin, I didn’t see any blood. Today I was looking her over and noticed two spots that had bled. Back end and shoulder. She’s doing good eating drinking walking around. My question is should I clean the wound or flush it with saline ? I couldn’t get Blu-kote today so I’m going tomorrow morning. What’s your opinions?

Thank you
