Oh no, poor rooster.
Do you know what caused this?
Have you cleaned the wound?
I'm not quite sure what you mean as a "very sore pussy saw on his leg" can you clarify this for us?

I’d recommend separating him from the flock and cleaning the wound. Then put antibiotic cream on the wound. Make sure the antibiotic cream doesn’t have any “caine” type pain relievers like Lidocaine which are toxic for chickens. Taking him to the vet might be the best option but this should at least help.

Do you have iodine or chlorhexidene that you can clean the wound with? Then apply plain antibiotic ointment or cream twice a day after each cleaning. The vet may want to prescribe an antibiotic. Roosters will fight, so they may need to be separated.

I think all you have to do is clean the wound with Vetrycin, or any sterile cleanser solution. Separate him inside your house where it is warm. Slather the wound in Neosporin and DON"T WRAP IT. Keep this up and he should heal fine.
