    Have you given him any antibiotics? After an attack chickens can develop secondary infections. Which the antibiotics would help with.

    That would have disinfected the wound. However if there's a secondary infection it wouldn't help. You'll need some of the powdered antibiotics you add to their water. Usually your local farm and feed store will have it.
