Bend coat hanger wire around the ends of the perches to make
a sort of "A" shaped frame at each end so the perch will sit
off the floor.
Look at those recessed ceiling light gratings at the local
DIY store (Lowes/Home Depot) for the floor. Some are like a
checkerboard pattern and about 3/8 inch thick but plastic is
easy to saw with any wood saw.
Sand the top of the grating so it isn't sharp to birdie toes.
