Introducing new chicks age question


In the Brooder

I am convinced of my 6 "pullets", 3 are roos. Alas, back to the feed store they go! My 3 girls are almost 8 weeks old and full time outside now. I would like 3 more girls for my flock.
I live in an area of the country I can get any age chick easily. I would prefer to get 3 more of about the same age and introduce the as a group, but would it be much easier to get older or younger chicks? I realize introducing the at any age takes time, but is there any advantage to introducing them to older or younger ones?
