    I'm thinking about getting some moer turkeys. Do all heritage breeds fly good or do some fly better than other breeds? they will prob be free range during the day.

    I have narrgansette hens. Both are free range and can fly. They fly on top of the barn at night. I noticed that their having more trouble than usual. Maybe getting to big. They are over 1 year now.
    The tom can't fly at all.
