I have recently heard that Silkies can't fly is that true?
True. They can not fly. Some get a little air under their wings when they jump, but that is mostly youngsters.
Sure they can fly; they just need an airplane
No, mine don't fly but as previously stated the chicks can get a little bit of flight going.

We have some Red Silkies that can jump pretty good, 4 Ft high but not fly just jump.
It is only because they grew up with others Salmon Faverolles, Leghorns Etc, that jumped up to the roost so they developed that trait as well.
Sure they can fly. Right off the ground and back down on their face.
Some can, good ones can't.
I had a little mean Silkie rooster that flew........... right off the tip of my shoe....
