Default Good or bad idea?

I read that hedgehogs are solitary animals - is this true? So, would it not be possible to keep 2 or more females or 2 or more males together? I have 4 hoglets that are 5 weeks old tomorrow and they will be weaned and removed from mom in the next week or two. I know that I have to separate boys from girls at 7 weeks old but could I house the sisters together and the brothers together (in separate enclosures obviously) until such time as I find a home for them? Will there be any fighting or bullying?
