In the Brooder
- Sep 15, 2010
I got 10 new standard Brahmas, they are 4 mos old. Where I got them they were in wire cages with a wooden box attached. I have a large coop with a large ladder perch that goes up the wall. These birds will not perch but sleep under the ladder which is not too pretty. I put them on the lowest perch each night when it is fairly dark in the coop but still enough light to see. They will stay for just seconds before jumping to the floor. This is very anoying. I'm afraid when they start to lay they will do it under the ladder and not in a nest box which will leave me with a bunch of dirty eggs. Please help!
