You could try pushing it back in and put a bit of raw honey on it, I've heard that can help. Good luck

I did but it keeps coming back out and even try to bandage it but it really doesn't work.

Honey (or maybe sugar water also) should tighten up everything so if you keep re-applying it it should help. Other than that I'm not completely sure, I use all herbs for my birds so have used Witch Hazel hydrosol and that works but most people don't have that. Will see if I can find any more info.

I did a search for this and found another thread with the same problem that goes back to 2011. I did not read the second link. Just brought it over here for anyone that needs it.
