According to several chicken trivia sites including Guinness World Book the longest verified flight of a domestic chicken is 13 seconds and 301.5 feet distance. I have several Araucana hens that would disagree with this record and a white German Shepard puppy that will gladly verify much longer time in air and distances involved.

Chickens can fly at 5 ft high and 13 seconds long.

They can jump and fly, but not for long distances.

Chickens have wings because they can, and do fly. They don't fly for long stretches, but they do fly up to perches at night, or if they're trying to get away from a predator.

Chicken fly for over 10 sec. but mostly fly for 13sec.

It depends how hard you kick them.

all chickens can fly a little but not very high or for very long - just about enough to get over a fence. wild chickens fly to get away from predators.

Yes they can. With wings chickens can fly but not for long distances. They can only fly at 5 ft high and for 13 seconds. This makes it even more difficult to catch chickens because they are really fast.

Yes all chickens could fly, but the reason people doubt it is because chickens don't fly that high and don't fly that far.

Chickens can fly, but they can't fly long distances. For the most part they stay in an outdoor run. We also free range our chickens and they know to come into the coop at night where they sleep. Chickens are a creature of habit, so you just have to let them know where home is, and they'll stick around.

Never. Chickens can fly but they are not capable of sustained flights...

No, they cannot fly after their wings are clipped. That is why someone would clip their wings.By the way, Chickens CAN fly without their wings clipped.

Chickens dont fly. Not even Baby ones.

Yes All chickens fly naturally. Not far or fast but they can. Most chickens have their flight feathers clipped and often get too fat to fly well but , yes, They can fly.

Normally, chickens can fly. Naturally raised, not scientifically bred chickens fly. Today's commercially raised chickens are bred for large breasts and small wings and therefore aren't able to fly. They are simply too heavy for the wingspan.

No the can flap and flutter to about 2 metres but cant fly very high or for very long

I assume you mean do chickens fly? The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds. Chickens can fly but not for very long and not very high. Hope that's answered your question. :)

because they have small wings. therefor, they can not fly for a long time like birds can. but they have little wings that help them fly when in danger. they cant go very far though!

That's not true. Chickens can fly, if you don't believe than go watch a YouTube video but if you still don't believe it than go see real chickens( but in reallife). You should check their wings and see them fly, once you see it you will understand that chickens can fly.

No chickens Are considered to hop not fly

Yes they can, chickens has wings and feathers.

no they can not fly very far

Yes. A chicken is a bird and can fly. They do not fly far or high but chickens that have not had their flight feathers clipped will fly. Some breeds actually like to fly and do so regularly.

Yes, primarily since chickens don't fly.

penguins cant fly, and chickens cant propperly fly!
