They can and will eat each other, but its pretty rare. Make sure you always seperate to feed and do not put them back together until the feeding response is reduced.

I've kept kenyans in colonies since 1998, and never had an incident with siblings or adults. I recently had an incident where a male killed 1 newborn baby and was constricting another one, but he didn't eat any to my knowledge.

If you are going to keep several snakes, I'd invest in a rack system. It makes everything much easier. I'm slowly converting all my snakes over to racks after 12 years of keeping colonies. It is just so much easier to keep accurate feeding/shedding records. Its easier to get some snakes to eat that way also.
