Best Answer

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.
