    I opened the pen today and one of our Hybrid 300 layers flew out the door. I tried to herd her back in and she flew across the yard. None of our other ducks have shown any inclination to fly and I didn't think they could.

    Flying ducks turn out to be a lot harder to herd than non-flying ducks.

    You should clip the primaries on one or both of her wings so she doesnt fly away.
