It will likely cause fighting between the males, and confusion for the hen. If there's no nest box in the cage though it shouldn't be a problem. :) The only way it would be a problem is if you're actively encouraging them to breed in the cage they all live in, if you were to remove a single pair and then add the nest box it would be better.

It would depend on the birds. The hen might get a bit nasty towards everyone if she lays eggs, but that's normal defensive mum behaviour. I would always have a spare cage just in case someone needs to be separated. :)

I agree with Bea it all depends on the birds, I am finding right now with mine its hormonal season and when the two males are any where near each other they start going at it so I keep them in separate cages.
