Multiple studs together?

Hi,
I only have one stud boy, I might hold back one of his sons, but more than likely will also purchase a non-related boy eventually. My boy is in a large outdoor/indoor run. I was wondering if anyone has has success with housing studs together. The girls are all indoors and if anyone needs breeding, the stud is brought to the queen in a completely different room. So can studs be housed together, or is this a big No, No?

I (had) three stud boys all living in the same area; I now have two sharing the man cave ;) They get along great; I have never heard them even quarreling, and they sleep curled up together in the same bed, even though there are several available.

I also bring the stud to a separate room to put with a queen.

My stud boys are not related, although my third boy (now neutered) is the father of my younger boy...that old boy was penned in an enclosure about half the size of the entire room because he sprayed. There was never any arguing through the enclosure walls, either.

One of my studs is a year older than the other, and he had been exposed to the younger one from an early age. This might be the reason they get along so well. I think they think they are brothers, but I may be just lucky, too. My boys are very laid back and easy-going. I also am very aware this harmonious situation could change at any time.....

Do you have any way of putting a partition in your stud run, in case they do not get along? Do you have plenty of climbing shelves, branches, or trees? Would there be a separate sleep area that each could occupy?

I have two studs in the same room but they are in separate enclosures. I would never attempt to house them together, but then I have females in the room as well...

My stud is very easy going, he was the first cat I got and loved every kitten I had after that. The outdoor run is huge and the indoor enclosure is quite large too, both in and out have a lot of crawl spaces, ramps, tunnels. I thought if I started socializing as a young age (3 Mos) supervised? If all else fails he will go in a room inside until I continue to build more. After having Pan inside who peed everywhere but the litter box, I just don't think I could house another stud again inside.

It may work for a while or not. I don't think there is any way to know. Some of mine hate the sight of each other but I the two I had that were brothers were sleeping together even after one had bred a litter. They usually don't start getting aggressive until well over a year. Do have a back up plan just in case?
My last stud loved is sons but anything that was male and not related to him was the enemy!

We keep studs separated, so that there is always an enclosure between two stud´s enclosures. But we always bring the girls to the men... (I´m sure there is a legal term for that?).
