is there a breed of chicken that is not flighty or doesnt fly`s well
Not that I know of and clipping wings are very easy.
Commercial hybrid production "breeds" tend to have the flying abilities of a brick
Thankyou I will get black star or
Similar or clip wings
Just FYI....my red stars(production reds)are pro flyers and if they can't fly the 4' fence, which most do, they will fence climb.... My Wyandottes, EEs, silkies, and 50% of my BRs stay put and don't fly.
O had mentioned silkie because they CAN'T fly.... But they're worthless for eggs lol
This is true as a general rule but not always. I have production reds and three of the hens where flying over a six foot fence and laying regularly somewhere. I had to to increase the fence to eight feet to prevent them from flying out. I do not clip because I do let they out to free range often and want them to fly to avoid predators.
