    mine are 25 wide, 50 long and 12 tall. Have an 8x8 covered shelter in each one with a roost inside (they seldom use)
    In the center of the pens, I have several tall poles holding the netting up 12 feet. On these poles, I put 2x4's between each section about 6-7 feet high. This is where they will always roost. That's about it. Being free ranged you could get by with smaller pens, or just one of this size. I keep 8-10 in each full time.

    Ours are fully penned 24/7. Our pen size is 25ft x 25ft x 10ft h. We also have the "supports" in the pen that peak the netting to the 10ft height, with the roosts between the two boards. They have a tiny "run in" shed where the feed is kept that is about 4'x4'x4', and then an ATTACHED (so it doesn't take up actual space) 10'x12' building for them. It houses 6 peafowl and 8 ducks easily. Though next year it will be increased to 50ft x 50ft x 10ft h.

    I like how Andys peafowl sancutary has the exotic plants inside the peafowl shed... and the wood that has been used as a pearch. It looks very natural...
