Do they need to be quarantined before mixing?

Sort of your choice there.

 

If I had any doubt what ever, I would quarantine for a few days.

Sort of a where did they come from question?

 

But you can mix breeds. They will find a pecking order just fine.

If you get your breeds from the same place at the same time -  you can skip the quarantine.  If you already have an established flock and now are adding new ones  - by all means DO quarantine.
