heavier breeds have trouble hopping over higher fences, they are great layers of medium to xL eggs, and really laid back.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I think many breeds can easily hop a 4 ft. fence and more importantly  so can most Predators.  If you don't want birds flying out/raptors flying in  a covered run would be your best option.    Any breed can have quiet and loud individuals - you never know which you have  until  something  sets them off.:welcome
