Default Budgie violently jumping

I have two budgies, one of them being handicapped, but I woke up at 2 am because of a lot of noise coming from the cage. When I check what's wrong, I just see them both jumping like crazy, to the point where they're bumping into the cage, and potentially hurting themselves. To prevent this I quickly took them both out and put them in their carrier. Inside that, one continued to jump, as if they were a case of extreme hiccups, but then stopped. They are both currently cuddled up in the carrier, and I have no idea what to do, please help, I'm absolutely terrified

I can imagine how you must be feeling. It sounds as though your budgies have experienced what we call A Night Fright.
Some budgies can go through life and never have one of these episodes but others are prone to having them regularly or every now and then.
Is their cage covered at night time? Covering the cage helps the birds feel safer and more relaxed. Place the cage against a wall away from windows or doors. Budgies do not have good night vision and are flight response bird. Having the cage covered helps keep out shadows, lights from cars if near a window.
These frights have caused some budgies terrible injury or in some cases death. Most members leave a small night light on near the cage to provide them with enough light to see if they are woken.

Have a read through this sticky.
