Karma to you for taking your sweet budgie to the vet.
Many Budgies live a life using platforms and ladders to perch.
I agree with you in separating them from each other if her friend gets to pick on her, they can still have time together but only when you are able to supervise them in case you need to help out.
The ramps are a great idea, place her food on a flat surfaced plate or bowl as well, be careful will supplying a bed as she could come into condition having this and then egg laying could be a problem. As long as she has a soft flat surface to sleep on she will be fine. My guys sleep on a rat double ladder bridge perhaps you can get one of these and cover it with some soft material she can then lay across it. Good luck I am sure you will be fine and so shall she.

Thanks for your quick response.

I just feel bad that she can't be a 'normal bird', and gets to see her friend perch and fly around like normal... Do you think my idea on the guinea pig cage is a good idea? Or should I try find something else to put her in? I just want her to comfortable and relaxed with the ability to fly short distances. It's hard for me to take her out for a fly as she can't land on anything and will then tire/stress out.

Can you post a picture of the cage you are thinking of?

Here is one I found online. The same idea, but wider. I know it wouldn't be the best idea for her to fly around in there but I want her to feel as normal as possible.
I got this photo from a different website and the bird in the image has the same issue as mine. The bird has been in that cage, with the new setup for over 3 years.

That sort of set up looks great and would be fine for your budgie to live in happily I am sure. Can she walk around at all?

Here is a link to a video. I would appreciate it if you could watch it and have a look at her current condition. In the video (and other times as well) she will spread her wing out slightly and it will twitch a bit, and then go back to normal. She will also walk on one leg/foot better than the other.

UPDATE: Jaja managed to climb up to her perch and sort of perch/sit there. She was so happy with herself.

That is wonderful how she managed to climb up and perch, she definitely has some sort of nerve or neurological damage causing the twitching by the looks. make sure she gets fed plenty of good healthy foods, greens, egg and biscuit mix, with time her condition might improve as her body and nervous system gently heals. Keep up the great work in looking after her.

I can only say I am thrilled with your care for your budgie. They are resilient little bird's and I'm sure because she has a caring owner like you, she is going to lead a wonderful life...

What is the best next steps from here? Jaja has a friend named Binks, and I have to seperate them as Binks will go a bit overboard and sometimes peck Jaja, and then they start to fight.

I thought of buying a guinea pig cage, apply ramps and a nice bed for her... Is this the best way?

EDIT: I'm good with building so I thought of attaching her current cage to the top where she can climb up to where another ramp would be (as I know birds like to be high up rather than on the ground).

That's great... means that the concussion is wearing off. Concussions are always very serious issues and can cause permanent damage.. but it can also cause temporary damage that can take a while to heal from. Looks like your girl may be healing well from the damage.
