I personally think that would be alright unless they show signs of aggression towards each other. good luck!

I keep my males numbers low, so I can’t say from experience, but I believe they can turn on each other very quickly, and there can be serious injury or even death from the first fight. You could wake up, or come home from the store and have a crime scene waiting for you.

Keep a close eye on them. They may be fine now, but that can change very quickly. As long as there is no violence, you can keep them together. That's when I start processing extra boys.

I think having lots of space is a big factor. Also that they grew up together. But in the end you still have to keep an eye out for signs of violence and overmated hens.

I agree with everyone but from my experience keeping males together can go any way. My friend bought what she was told was 4 females which turned out to be 3 males and 1 female (which sadly passed). There was some fighting between males but with lots of space and because some grew up together she still has two males in an enclosure. This however is different because they have other birds which are bigger and they probably feel less territorial. Just make sure you keep an eye on them because males can go either way but in the end it’s really your choice. :)
