I’m a new Pewfowl owner. I inherited 5 Pewfowl (2 adult males, 1 adult female, & 2 chicks probably 3-ish months old when I received them, one of each sex) 4 weeks ago and keep them together happily in a 18x40x10 pen. I got 4 more from the same deceased family member (1 adult female and 3 chicks, I’m guessing 2-ish months old and can’t determine their sex yet) today, September 24, 2020. Put them in the same pen with the original 5. The the 3 chicks I got today & 1 of the adult females (not sure which batch she’s out of because both adult females look the same) are being picked on horribly by the other adult female and the male chick from the first batch. Will this subside or will they need to be separated? Please help!

here you go....it’s 18x30 not 40
It has two roosting areas but plan to add more this weekend and one water and food source but plan to add more this evening
My long term plan is to make them all free roaming but I’d like to keep them penned up a little longer however I’m considering turning the two bullies loose if I don’t find a resolution soon.
