I have intergraded younger chicks with older ones...You sheer number of younger chicks that you are adding will make it a lot easier.. The new outweighs the older ones.. The only time I would be worried is if it was the other way around and you were adding less chicks to a brooder full of older chicks...But you should be fine.
