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

    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.[​IMG]
