Mixed chick order - have I lost my mind?

    OK, unfair question, I have definitely lost my mind, but I ordered these pullets from McMurray to arrive in early May:
    1 Black Minorca, 1 Buff Rock, 2 Buff Laced Polish, 1 Blue Andalusian, 1 Golden Penciled Hamburg, 1 partridge Rock, 1 White Wyandotte, 1 Silver Spangled Hamburg, 1 Lakenvelder, 1 Silver leghorn, 2 Ameraucana, 1 Dominique, 1 White Crested Black Polish

    I was assured that if they are raised together that they will get along, now I'm starting to freak out a little (can you tell this is my first chicken experience beyond helping my grandma when I was a kid?)

    Thanks, and don't be surprised if you see me around here more and more in the coming weeks/years!

    They'll get along just fine. My current flock are a mix and my new 20 chicks are mixes too. They don't know the difference between breeds!
