    - can they fly? wondering if there legs hold them back from that ability to get off the ground

    - can they roost? also wondering if there legs are to long for them to be able to lay down properly

    - can they run? or are they like birds on stilts to where is impeds them from going fast like a person on stilts cant run

    thanks for any help.

    They can get flight like any other chicken, just not sustain it.

    They can roost perfectly fine, at least mine did.

    They run pretty fast, just like any other chicken.
