    Something's fishy here. Where did you get your "Cayugas" from?

    My Cayugas are lucky to get an inch or two off the ground RUNNING, FULL SPEED, DOWNHILL, to the pond. LOL I agree, I think you may have East Indies...

    If I used a catapult I don't think my cayugas could get over the house. LOL. Do you have pictures of your cayugas?

    Ok here are the pictures: This is a mystery.

    these were taken about 2 weeks ago when their tail feathers appeared. so they were about 4 months old here.

    yeah my heart dropped when they took off. I've been noticing that everyday they fly better and better. They've realized that they can fly so when they have the option to fly or walk a long distance, um they fly. The other day they were probably 100-120 feet from me (downhill) and I poured fresh feed in their bowl and they here they came. Uphill, airborne.

    Today really freaked me out though. I just stood there like I had seen a ghost.

    Now that i look at them in the pool, they look a bit smaller than regular cayugas. Heck, just today i picked one of mine up and when i let it go i kind of threw it up a bit , it flapped its wings fell on the ground and did a face plant....yep, mine dont fly

    Quote:Keep in mind, that picture was taking back in early July. They were around 12 weeks old there.
