    My bramas are getting close to 4 months old. Will it work well to keep 2 roosters and 8 hens together in one bird house and run? I wanted to post a picture but couldn't figure out how.

    if the roos have been raised together yes the may get along - however with 8 hens to fight over they may get antsy and take up fighting over dominance...But brahmas tend to be very laid back roosters...Mainly with the brahmas your going to have to worry about size of coop and run - and if you have more than the minimum space as they're going to probably need a bit more room with 2 roos in there to avoid major scrapes often.
