    Welcome to BYC.

    Is she dragging it or does it seem to hurt her?
    Can she move/use it at all?
    Do you know what caused her injury?

    You can try to place the wing in it's natural position and wrap it against her body with vet wrap or gauze. It will take some time to heal, so keep her separated with her own food/water.

    If she is able to use it some then you may want to wait and see what happens.
