    Yeah, mine can do little bursts of flying but nothing near enough for them to fly away [​IMG] If they start to get really high and far and you're worried they will escape you could always clip their wings to be on the safe side but you shouldn't have any problems [​IMG]

    That's kinda good to know. I've been seeing some runner-hybrids (with the shorter runner wings) show up at the lake and it made me kinda sad because I thought they were getting dumped there. But, one runner and his two khaki friends seem to come and go, so maybe they're flying in and out from somewhere nearby. That would be good because that means that they weren't unwanted, but just escapees.
