Chicken wound - pecked by others

My little white ranger has a wound. A couple of weeks ago she lost a few feathers and the others pecked at the patch and it was bleeding. Purple sprayed her and all seemed ok. A couple of days ago I discovered they'd been at it again. She had a wound about the size of an old 50p. Its shallow and I cleaned it - looked pretty clean anyway. I have some leucillin anti bacterial spray.

Since then I've kep her separate. She's eating, drinking and laying. She is very flighty and a nightmare to catch hold of. The skin looks very dark now. Is it because a scab has formed or could it be infection? She is a flapper and squawker and I struggle to hang on to her and look properly.

If she's laying then I'm sure she's fine, when you put her back in with the others try dabbing a bit of sudocream on there - the smell should put the others off.
