Mixing young pullets from 2 different breeders........

    Okay.......in about 3 weeks I will be getting the following from 2 different breeders (not hatcheries)..............
    A "trio" of Light Sussex.......2 pullets and a roo........and they will be 4-5 weeks of age when they arrive.
    2 lavender Silkies (4-5 weeks old), 3 true Ameraucana pullets, and 2 Copper Marans........all 4-5 weeks old, and all
    from the 2nd breeder.
    Neither of these breeders vaccinates their chicks, and they tell me their chickens are fed and raised organically,
    and that they have had no disease problems in their flocks, or on their property.

    My question is this.......................will I need to isolate the chicks from each breeder separately.......or can they all go
    right into the coop together?

    TO be on the safe side I would isolate them. It sure can't hurt anything!
