    I bought 25 RIR chicks which two were lost during shipping. I have decided that I wanted more chicks and ordered 30 more chicks, there will be about 4 weeks apart in age, will I have any problems putting them together right off the bat.

    You will have mountains of problems! The older ones will beat up the babies and the feed requirements will be different. Don't do it! Just raise them separately.
