    I am working on my plans for a larger pen for the peacocks this spring. They are in the barn right now and out grew their coop and smaller pen they were in as babies. What size shelter should I have build for 2 male peacocks? I'd like it to be suitable for them when they are finally full grown. Other than perches is there something I should include? I only ever had ducks and they were MUCH easier to keep (they just lived on the pond year round and wandered the yard freely).

    I was considering buying a shed/barn on craigslist but the next door neighbor makes awesome chicken coops and then I wouldn't have to do the work of winterizing the shed as I am disabled.
