If there are two indistinguishable bosons that can either be in the |0> or |1> state, what is the probability that both will be in the |0> state? (ie the system will be in the |0>|0> state)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know there are only three possibilities for the total state of the system: |0>|0>, |1>|1>, and (1/sqrt2)(|0>|1>+|1>|0>), but are these states equally probable? (I'm assuming that a single boson has an equal probability of being in either |0> or |1>) Would the probability of being in |0>|0> just be 1/3? or is it more complicated than that?
