    First thing, after the awful death of Maisie:cursing: we finally got some more Hens. Three weeks ago we bought 4 more Warrens, the pecking order has now been sorted and they're getting on fine.

    Now, the Domesticated Chicken hasn't really flown for about 5 thousand years. Apparently the decision not to fly was made on a wet Saturday afternoon, at about 3pm, just after the pubs shut! Karen seems to think they enjoy a flutter (Gardens full of old betting slips!) so she picks a Hen up, chucks it on top of the coop, about 6' 6" high, and watches it fly down (onto an area deep in straw). I told her that they're not flying, they're flapping there wings as they plummet to the ground:_out:! So, what do you all think? do you think they enjoy it:great:

    I'm looking foreward to the hen-owners on this one.
    I know some of "our" hens have been renowned for their flights!

    Trinny and our other chickens are allowed to run free in our garden because we have a six-foot wall running around it. So the fact that Trinny was found the other side of it would imply a) too many left over baked beans the day before enabling rocket propulsion, or b) the little b*gger could fly...

    Keeper of the hens

    Certainly some bantams and other light breeds can be pretty good fliers, although obviously not in the same way as Sparrows and such. Our chucks have flapped their way to heights of about five or six foot before, and they've all been dual purpose breeds, bred for meat and laying, so not the lightest.

    I have a couple of chickens who can fly up into the trees..the little rooster that came to live with us a few years ago flies very well. He only stays here because this is where all the hens are.
