    If it is out of socket you need a vet. Are you sure it is not angel wing? Do a search on angel wing, it could be what it is. You will need to wrap it with vet wrap back into place. What are you feeding her?

    You'll have to put it back in...or take him/her to an exotic vet or a wildlife centre to have them do it...

    Is it still in fluff? By that I mean not feathering in?

    If it is then it cannot be angel wing.

    If the wing is dislocated then you have to have it taken to a vet, because if it's dislocated it is serious.
