In the Brooder

Just had a major coop catastrophe...the roosting bar fell down and the birds were freaking out! I don't think any are hurt but this is the second night I've had to help one of them onto the roost, I don't know if there is enough room for her to get up there if the others are already purched, but here is plenty of room on the bar for all 3. Should I lower the bar? It's a kit coop and I just have it at the height it came, and I can lower it. Do they care to be high or low? It's just a small 10 sq ft roosting coop, which I thought would be plenty for birds to just sleep and nest in. Suggestions? This sad RIR has needed a boost two out of the three nights I've had these birds, and they got quite a scare when the bar fell down. I checked them all over, though it was dark, but I don't see any injuries, just a lot of squawking.
