My 2 cockatiels lulu and blacky suddenly freaked out and bolted out their cage and crashed into the wall a couple of times, idk what happened since I was trying to sleep and the lights were off, lulu seems to be more freaked out and frightened so my only guess is that they hurt each other since they have fought a couple of times to day, my heart was at its limits cause lulu crashed into me I though she was going to have a heart attack, I don’t know am I missing something, she’s now sleeping on my bed and he’s sleeping on the curtain idk

Sadly, that's pretty common for cockatiels. It's called "night Fright" Just about ANYTHING can set them off and in most cases, we never really find out what scared them. Do you keep there cage covered at night? Even if you don't it's a good idea to leave a small night lite on for them where there not in total darkness. Hope this helps.

Make sure that the cage is large so if/when they thrash around there is less chance for injury. A night light is a super thing to have. I have read taht putting a bit of food in their feeder before bed gives them some comfort - maybe that will help if you do not do this already.
