    Silkies can jump, but can't really fly.
    Brahmas can fly some bantams can.
    Cochins can fly.

    Quote:I have all the breeds you listed and the Brahmas, Cochins, Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, and the Easter Eggers all can clear 8' high easy.
    Silkies can clear a 3½' high easy.

    Haven't seen any really fly.
