News Flash: Chickens can fly. I'm a farmboy, I know. They usually don't, but they can. If they are not confined to a chicken coop or chicken house, they will often roost in trees for safety at night. Ducks also fly, even the fat ones we have over on the lake near my place.

Birds such as Peacocks can also fly. My Uncle had some and they were always roosting on the roof of his house.

The only truely flightless birds I can think of are penguins, ostriches, emus, that kind of thing. Unless you clip their wing feathers, but those feathers grow back so you have to clip them every so often to keep them from being able to fly.

guinea fowl? they are bigger the roosters.. but they look kinda like a cross between a vulture, a quail and a turkey. I'd say they are more out-side birds from what my professor told me though..

A freaky flightless bird would be an emu.

Why would you want I flightless bird as a pet, just to get some attention, do something out of the ordinary. Think of the wellfare of the animal and don;t just get a pet for the kick of it~

People may or may not agree with doing this but you can take any(?) bird and make it flightless.

Cockatiels are easy to care for and manage and you can easily clip its wings to make it flightless and they are rather musical too.

Regarding flightless birds tho, I'd love to own a penguin.
