Subject: BQ head injury

My 3 1/2 month BQ hen, Bee, boinked her head pretty badly against her pen. I've been keeping it clean, and applying some Neosporin on it. It looked like it was healing. The problem is that she kept scratching it and opening it back up. So I put an eliabethan collar on her (originally made for a budgie out of x-ray film) thinking she wouldn't be able to reach it.

Then this morning the back of her head was opened up to where you could pull the scalp down quite a bit. She's at the vet's getting stitched up, and I'm worried sick. Has anyone had to rehabilitate a badly injured BQ?
