Two men have been remanded in custody after being arrested at the weekend at a remote farm in Leicestershire.
Daniel Mansell, 33, and Joshua O'Gorman, 27, have been charged with entering a building with intent to steal.
Mansell is due to appear at Leicester Crown Court on September 25 and O'Gorman will appear before magistrates on September 14.
The break-in near Welby, which is near Melton Mowbray, led to the arrest of the farm's owners Andy, 35, and 43-year-old Tracey Ferrie after shots were fired at two of the intruders.
The couple were questioned on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm but were released on bail on Tuesday evening.
Mr Ferrie called police in the early hours of Sunday to tell them he had picked up his legally-owned shotgun after being disturbed by the men and fired at them.
Leicestershire Police said officers were called to the cottage at around 12.30am.
Five minutes later, paramedics were called to treat a man with shotgun injuries. It is understood that call was made by one of the suspected burglars.
Later, a second man was treated for shotgun injuries after arriving at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Their injuries were not life-threatening and both were released from hospital.
