Default jumping from high height

My budgies for some reason like jumping off high heights (well it seems like they jump off purposely) but i dont know if its harmful to them. they always land on their feet and they're still young so wings dont work yet. i dont know the dimensions of my room but they climb up from the cage onto the curtains then fall all the way down to the ground. sometimes even landing on me which is definitely a softer landing than the ground. they sometimes also crash into their cage which also worries me. but most of the time, they climb back up to the curtain railing just to jump off again. Is this normal behavior? if i see it i always catch them before they fall to the ground.

How old are they? Have their wings been clipped?

It doesn't sound as if they are jumping off in order to fall, they are trying to learn to fly.

You can set up a mosquito net hanging from the ceiling over your bed draped down around the sides of the bed like a canopied tent.
The budgies can practice flying inside the "tented" area and will have soft landings on your mattress.

Budgies learn to fly fairly quickly when they are young, so how old are they?
Have you bred them or are they from a store/breeder?
It's not exactly the behaviour I'm familiar with.

At the very least, you can always pad the area on the floor with a thick blanket or several towels.

i dont know exactly, i just know they're young because we had to wait for their nostrils to be pink/blue to tell their gender
we got them from a local petco store

As you bought them from Petco, I'm fairly sure their wings have been clipped.
The big-box pet stores generally always clip the birds wings.

Therm, I think they're just learning to fly now because Petco clips their wings at such a young age
