OK to get chicks from different stores a day apart?

Tractor Supply has one breed I really want, and Orscheln's has the other. Is it okay to mix those chicks? I wouldn't be able to get them at the same time, maybe not even the same day. It would be the following day; would that cause problems with the chicks since they weren't together in the brooder at the store?

Thanks!

Absolutely fine. I have a mixed group right now that I am brooding. They came from my local hatchery in California, but also from my local feed store down the street that happened to have a handful of leftovers of a breed I was looking for, specifically. They're also a week apart in age, and they all do fine.
