    Double the size and you should be ok. Peacocks can be pretty pugnacious, so unless you have lots of room for the birds to retreat safely, I wouldn't keep them together.

    If no other option & you must, then provide lots of perching, cover, and enrichment items to keep the birds occupied & provide areas for smaller birds to go.
