Hello
I am not an expert, far from.
But if your budgie is 10 years then he is getting old, maybe he can no longer fly because of ageing? Just a thought

Without more information, we have no way of knowing what the problem is preventing your budgie from flying at this point in time.

Is your budgie 10 years old or 10 months old?
How many times have his wings been clipped?
Are you certain they were not clipped too short?
How large is the cage where the budgie is housed?
Length x Width x Height

When a budgie is not used to flying or has been kept in a cage that is too small, it's wing muscles atrophy and are not strong enough to allow the bird to fly.

Please post some clear in-focus pictures of your budgie in this thread so we can assess his condition.

Additionally, please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Pictures from PhotoBucket

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
