    I would just spray it with blue kote and just make sure it heals before putting her back with the flock. You can always get some nonstick gauze and cover it with it to minimize any infection.

    For now, just keep the wound clean. Keep her warm and don't stress her out to much.

    Also, watch out for any sign of infection. It wouldn't be good if she got one.

    Keep me posted :)
