My 9 wk. old pair have made it through their second week living outside. Living in a small coop, I turn them out in an "unplanted garden" during the evening when I get home and on weekends during the day.
Well tonight the hen while exercising her wings got airborne about 12" - think it surprised her as much as I.
The big clumsy drake is unable but he saw her and wants to taste flight as well..
All the websites I have found say Rouens can't fly but I found one site which said they can fly up to 100'. A 100' flight will put her 4 yards away.....big trouble!
So what are others experiences with airborne Rouens? Will they fly?
Mentioned the "unplanted garden" - my wife just yesterday reminded me that the garden was the reason I got the ducks in the first place as snail and slug control - now I enjoy watching them run around in it and well veggys are over rated, right?
