We have chickens. Some can fly, some cannot. The heaviest breed of chicken, the jersey giant, is too heavy. Most heavy breeds are just not made for flight. Some lighter breeds can indeed fly farther than others. Most others can fly a little (up or over a bit), just are not capable of prolonged flight.

It does make somewhat of a difference as well if they are confined or free. They do need to exercise the muscles needed.
