Welcome! Glad you joined us!
Adding to the flock brings up issues like biosecurity (what illnesses might these birds have?) and pecking order (how much they'll squabble). Biosecurity is the biggest issue; I wouldn't bring more in unless you have a good place to quarantine them well-away from your existing flock.
Maybe someone else will chime in, too.
