I have seen many instinces where corns are kept together. Usually they are around the same age. Sometimes kingsnakes can be kinda "bold" with their keeper. They have a little more "attitude" if you will, but I really enjoy this, it gives them a lot of personality. They also shake their tail (as I'm sure you know) at anything they don't like. They do musk A LOT as hatchlings/juveniles, but that does depend on how much you interact with them. We got ours when he was a yearling and he quit musking completely about 2-3 months after having him. It's just a socialization thing. Kings can be a little more wary than corns, but our Cal king has never struck or bitten and he's been very good with the students I teach as well as friends. I will say the corn is more tolerant and they do slow down as they get older, but as youngsters, they're always on the move. We got our corn as a hatchling and although hatchlings are supposed to be nervous and "bite" sometimes, she's always been very sweet(also never struck or bitten). Kings seem to just continuously want to move, lol. I highly recommend both.
HOpe this helps! Oh and I'm sure you know this, but I'd look into a reputable breeder, maybe take the boys to a reptile show?
Good luck!
