I got three EE in late Feb. I have never had EE before. Last night I let all the chickens free range about 1 1/2 before dark like I always do and was sitting on the patio just watching my chickens being happy chickens. One of the EE decided the top of the coop would be a nice place to go to survey the yard for tasty things to eat. My coop is at least 7 1/2 tall at it's lowest point. The other two EE soon followed suit, these three were raised together and stick to each other like glue. I sat and watched them then the next thing I knew the leader flew to a branch in the pecan tree. This was a flight of about 15-20 feet, the other two quickly followed. They then started going up, flying from one branch to the next until they were at least 30 feet up in the air. I thought they wanted to roost up there and there was no way I was going to be able to retrieve them. I also was thinking they were going to go spat when they flew down. Well they didn't want to roost in the tree and one by one flew down from the highest branch they reached. The landings were not too bad and no one seemed to get injuried. Anyone else have experience with EE and their flying capabilities? I had no idea they could do what I saw them do.
