    I am building a coop for 10 light brahmas and was reading that these large birds cannot fly. Does anyone know how high I should put the roosting beams for them?

    My bramahs are about a year old and full grown. They dont fly well but they can.. My coop is 4 ft. High and they have no problem jumping up on the top of the door to the run. My roost is about 2ft off the floor. Hope it helps and good luck bramahs are great birds. Friendly nice looking and my buff bramahs lay about 5 mediun light brown/ cream colored eggs a week
