There are some good resources if you type "integrating new chickens into a flock". @Aart has written some helpful ones.

If you're getting them all as day old chicks on the same day..... yes, you can put them together right away.....best way to do it actually.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I ditto the previous post. if they are all the same age it is best to put them together right away.
