Chickens can fly for short distances. In the wild, they roost in trees, not on the ground. Chicken farmers will "pin" their wings to keep them under manageable control.

"Genetically-modified" chickens are raised for human consumption, and are not structurally the same as wild birds. Normal chickens can fly pretty well, and banties can fly as well as partridges! (i.e. not as high or as far as migratory birds).

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.

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.

User Avatar

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

User Avatar

Yes, primarily since chickens don't fly.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

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.
