    It can walk, the injury does not hurt her flesh, it hurts her skin.

    Separate them. She will continue to produce fertile eggs for at a minimum of two weeks. That should represent a clutch large enough that she wil set - that is if your intent is to raise poults. 1 tom with 1 hen presents the possibility for serious injury.
