  2. Many of us have posted lots of pics of our coops and runs. If you search on those key words you will find a LOT of nice examples.

    I tried to post an outisde pic but my phone is not cooperating today.
    Either way, what I've built and am in the process of finishing is a 13' x 12' floored shed with the South-East side of the roof in sheet steel roofing and the North-West side in transparent acrylic sheet roofing (that lets a fair amount of light in without letting the shed get too hot in summer). The outside is an enclosed aviary approximately 16' x 40'. The supports are 3/4 inch steel wiring conduit with chicken wire as the barrier.

    The main idea was to have plenty of perches and room to run around in. When it's all done I intend to have 8 to 10 peafowl.
    I have 5 now, all between 3 and 4 months old.

    Here's 4 of them:[​IMG]

    Depending on your male:female ratio that should be plenty of space. If you have 1 Indian Blue male, 1 White male, and the rest are hens, your males shouldn’t be fighting a lot since there’s plenty of space and there’s enough hens for each male. I have seen other breeders house several males and females during breeding season without problems but I don’t know how large their pens were. I keep my pens 1 male to 1-3 hens so I know who the parents are.
