    Our gunieas fly up 12 feet to get to the lowest branch of their favorite roosting tree.

    They are excellent flyers & will fly out of any pen that does not have a top on it.

    Mine will fly straight up 40 feet to land in the top of the oak trees. They are extremely adept fliers even if their first choice for moving is running. The first few times mine flew at me in the field I'd duck because I didn't realize they had such control and would turn enough to miss me.

    Mine fly to the top of the house 3 story, so i would have to Yeah they will fly over the fence. If in the same run as your chickens you can put a landing board on top of fence for them to stop at on way into and out of run. They should return each night to roost in the coop.
