Why can’t chickens fly high?
chickens cannot fly is because of their bone structure and weight. The chickens that we know today are shorter, have heavy bones and more weight for their body, making it difficult for them to fly. Though they can hop and fly to a short distance.
Another reason is that a chicken has white meat in the breast. It is white because they have little blood flow. Little blood flow means less energy to those muscles so they cannot fly from lack of muscular power.
