No. Think about mammals. Humans don't have ill effects if they don't bread. Maybe a little frustration and conseguently more wrinkles, but I doubt that your snakes will ever suffer similar problems Emotion: smile

I have a separate tank that I feed them in, it has all the usual amenities water heat shade etc. If I want to make sure that no regurgitation occurs how long is a good time before I move it back to the main tank?

I find it comes out the other end after 4-5 days. They're definitely not going to regurgitate after that ;-)
As I have no plans to breed and I have been assured that all five corns are female (I know caveat emptor Emotion: smile),

Even if they're not, you don't have to incubate the eggs.
Just because you see snakes clump up together doesn't mean they're friends, as we might interpret it.
I'd say to make sure you have adequate hides for all of them, so the dominant ones don't have the chance to make the submissive ones change their attitudes towards eating, as that can happen.

You just have to watch the dynamic and prepare to change your decision as things evolve, I think.

I'm inclined to think "cushions", myself.

I move my baby corn back immediately after she's swallowed her pinky and I then leave her for at least 24 hours before handling her again

I move all my snakes immediately after feeding. It only takes a second to put them back in their cage. I do not have regurgitation problems.

I also do not provide amenities in my feeding cages... its just a plastic box with a sheet of newspaper in the bottom. They're only in there long enough to swallow the rodent. I've read that snakes who are permitted to drink a bunch of water after eating are more likely to regurgitate.

I see it as "this seems to be the best place in this cage to hang out". No matter if there are other snakes in that spot or not, they just seem to go where they want.
However after catching my children's pythons in the act of fornicatin' last night IN their moist hide box, I wonder... "this seems to be the best place in this cage to hang out. Oh look, another snake. Say baby, do you wanna lay down with me?" Emotion: smile
