Juvenile Pied Fantail visited my house

I am having a dinner at 7:30pm when this Juvenile Pied Fantail suddenly enter my house through a front door. My son open the windows, front and back doors and try to push it back outside. The young bird just fly up in circle at the ceiling, and don't  fly low  have no clue where the exit points are.
We chase it for about 15minites around the house, until the bird completely exhausted and trap at the corner of kitchen. 
I inspect the bird's wings and body for any injury.
finally released it outside
too tired and dark, she just landed at cloth hanger at the veranda
