From what I have heard and seen, sometimes they can get over a low fence, or coast downhill a bit, or do some wing-assisted jumping.
But as far as I know, those breeds, especially mature birds, would not be likely to take off and fly more than a few yards at most. Not like wild mallards or muscovies.
I'd thought they couldn't, and then mine got lift. Since Pepper and Salt are drakes, I really don't want them getting out. They are twice the size of Bert (mallard drake) and they've been having stand-offs through the fence with him.
Bean (our new drake) can scale a 3 foot fence by flapping himself over it. He hasn't even tried scaling the four foot fences.
Cayugas are supposed to be able to fly, and my hens could, but not like a mallard, just to big.
Well, he's gotten out before, but I thought he'd gone through the fence. Maybe he flew.
