I would clean the wound with some warm soapy water, then apply antibiotic ointment and/or a wound spray, like bluekote. It is good that you have the hen isolated, since she is probably in shock and other birds would likely peck at her wound. Encourage her to eat whatever she wants--normal chicken feed, scrambled eggs, mealworms, etc. I would also recommend getting some poultry vitamins/electrolytes and putting them in her water to help with stress.
Other than that, just watch for infection. Chickens tend to be excellent healers, so as long as the hen eats, drinks, and remains free from infection, she should be okay.
Welcome to BYC! I would rinse the skin off with water and then apply Neosporin or Vetericyn.Keep her isolated until it heals.You can offer eggs and tuna often.
