Hello, thank you for contacting our service. I am sorry for the late reply.
I didn't understand exactly what you meant by "stepping on a wing". If you have a video or photo, please upload it. If your bird is tickling all over his/her body, it may be infected with a pest such as bird lice. Bird lice are parasites that live on the skin of birds. These can cause itchiness. These pests can be eliminated with insecticides that are compatible with parrots. Or another skin condition could be the cause of her itchy skin. From the information you gave, it is currently impossible to guess what the problem might be. I recommend that you make an appointment with your veterinarian for a diagnostic test. Thank you.
