The heavy bodied meat breeds tend to get too heavy to fly but they may get some height before they bulk out. Our Muscovy drakes were far too heavy to fly and even the hens were too heavy for their wings. The juveniles could fly a bit but they stayed with their mothers so they mostly walked instead of flying. I am not sure they knew what their wings were for other than splashing water when bathing.
