It depends on your flock. Some may be ok others may not. All u can do is try and wait and see if they wont be ok u should know by observation. Our hens are rather mean sometimes and have lost several babies in past. Now we have a "transition" coop.

Just give them plenty of time to get used to the newbies being around. Fence them in a separate area but where the older ones can see the newbies. I also let mine roam the coop & run uninterrupted while the older chickens are outside. Gives them a chance to explore the future new digs and start getting their scent in there.
