    I have 2 perches in my large coop. There is about 18" between them and they seem to be comfy with that. Good Luck and i hope this helped.

    The spacing I have heard and use is 1 foot horizontal. It works.

    Sometimes, if they are too close together they will peck at each other. I would go with as far away as you can.
