I thought Indian runners were unable to fly, but to my dismay I witnessed my pair fly yesterday! They only got a few feet off the ground, but now I'm worried they might fly away and get killed.
Has anyone witnessed an Indian runner in full flight? What should I do?

Wing assisted jumping is all I have seen. Four foot fence they have never gotten over. Two and a half, three foot, sometimes they can take a running leap.

That's about all they will be able to do.

Mine try to fly to the pond each morning. Ally has a broken wing, so she runs and flaps one wing. The other 3 try, one gets decent distance, but not far up.
Unless you have short fences, I'd not worry about it.

Phew! Thanks for that.
It was amazing to see, plus they had a big ol chat about it before they did it!

Haha! I can just imagine a ducky count-down: "3... 2... 1... cleared for take off!"
