For more than 6 fields the straightforward approach seems to be more 
efficient:

Clear[st];
st[p:_Symbol | _Wick | _Integer] := p;
st[p_Plus] := st[p] = st /@ p;
st[p_Times] := st[p] = Module[{i, j},
   Expand[p + Sum[Wick @@ p[[{i, j}]]*st[Delete[p, {{i}, {j}}]],
    {i, 1, Length[p] - 1}, {j, i + 1, Length[p]}]] /. _Integer -> 1]


st[a*b*c*d]

   a*b*c*d + c*d*Wick[a, b] + b*d*Wick[a, c] + b*c*Wick[a, d] +
   a*d*Wick[b, c] + Wick[a, d]*Wick[b, c] + a*c*Wick[b, d] +
   Wick[a, c]*Wick[b, d] + a*b*Wick[c, d] + Wick[a, b]*Wick[c, d]

Timing[Length[st[a*b*c*d*e*f*g*h*i*j]]]

{2.282*Second, 9496}
