  • Totally normal and healthy, they will grow up to be friends.......all you need to do is supervised fights so it doesn't get out of hand and always emphasize the importance of blood, the importance of family, there will come a time when their interests will somewhat be the same and union is formed

  • yeah, it's normal. Let somebody outside the family try to start something with them tho - see how fast they act as a united front - LOL!!! You know - the old "I can beat the crap out of them - but don't you even think about it!"
