    Hi there godfather,
    Did you clean it first? You can clean it up with sterile saline solution (boil 8 oz of water with 1/2 teaspoon non-iodized salt and let cool) and dress it with Neosporin (with no pain relief, anything ending in -caine is poison to chickens).

    You can give her aspirin for pain: 1 baby aspirin in a cup of water or up to 5 325 mg aspirins in a gallon.

    Good luck.
