At least 6. You could get as many as 8. :) I think 7 would be a nice number, though.

Just make sure you don't do less than 5 - anything less and you don't have a big enough "safety barrier". With three, two will gang up on one and kill her, then attack each other. 4 is just barely safe, but if one dies or gets ill, the others will attack it and then you are down to the dangerous three again, so 5 is pretty much the minimum to be safe.
