Problem rotating

I’m presently following an udemy tutorial. IN it I have to model a well with a tile roof over it. I had no problem with the well or with the post forming the armature of the roof. I was able to rotate them and position them easilly. Now I’m working on the latice holding the tile. This is composed of 8 individual “stick” that rest on my 45 degree angled upper post.

My problem comes when I select them all, make a copy and then try to flip them so I can place them on the other side of the angled roof.

If i try to rotate them on X-axis, the stick spin on themselves.
On Y-axis it spin horizontally
On Z-axis it tumble on it’s end.

In short, I just can’t find a way to have them go from -45 degree to +45 degree.
