I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you please clarify "bottom of the catch" for me? I need to clarify if her legs were weak and she got caught in the bottom of the catch or she injured herself because her feet were caught in the bottom of the catch. Which type of bird is Jamie, please? It's very difficult to assess injury from afar. These birds needs to examined hands-on. Until Jamie can be attended to, please heat up her environment to 29.4C by means of a 100W bulb shined into her partially covered cage (not at night when she needs to rest) or by taping a heating pad set on its lowest setting to the sides of her cage. Remove her perches and put her food and water on the bottom of the cage along with her.
