Hi Lucy, welcome to the Avenue,

First, be sure your cage is adequate, more long than tall and not too tall if the bird falls from perches.
I have a 18x18x30 finch flight cage for my lovebird, other members have the critter nation cage for larger birds.
Line the cage floor (be sure to take the grid out if there is one) with some non pilling fleece, blankets, or other soft mats/materials.
Purchase ramps and cotton perches. You can vet wrap dowels and ramps to make them softer for comfort.
(Tip, the rodent section has more choice for ramps, platforms and ladders)

How old is your bird? If she´s still young be sure to keep the food and water on the ground, and assess as she grows as to which dishes are best for her.
Maybe you could share a picture of her current set up with us and we can offer some suggestions?

It´s also important to go to the vet for a wellness check (and basically a meet n greet) so that the vet is aware of her condition and she´s already registered should you need to see the vet in the future, this will save time.

Welcome to the forum. Thank you for helping this bird. Some platform perches might work for her too.
