My Wyandotes have not gotten out since I switched from a 40" plastic that they would sit on, to a 48" wire fence.  I think the wire is kinda tough on their feet but to my knowledge they have never even tried.

My chickens are able to get on top of there ten foot run. Even with clipped wings, three feet could easily be jumped!

My Leghorns can easily jump onto my shoulders, that's at least 5 feet.
