Question budgie crash lands?

So a little background info: I got Alpha about a month ago and he is doing great. The breeder that I bought him from clipped his wings, and new feathers are slowly growing in. He seems to want to fly seeing the he is constantly trying to fly from one place to the other. However it seems that whenever he doesn't make it and lands on the floor, his entire body just sorta flops on the floor. like his head just crash lands on the ground. Is this normal?

It is normal for them to plop to the floor when the wings are clipped, however you should not be allowing this to happen as he could be badly injured. When he is out of the cage you must be right there with him ready to prevent a fall, it may take several months for him to grow enough feathers for him to be able to sustain any degree of flight.

Pad the floor with toweling as well in case you don't catch him when he starts to fall.
That will at least give him a bit of cushioning when he lands.

One member hangs a mosquito net around the bed and allows the budgies that are learning to fly
(or have unfortunately had their wings clipped) practice flying in that area so they always land on the mattress.
