That's probably not a good idea, there's too much age difference.  If it was not more than a weeks difference you could probably get away with it.

I have found that if you put the younger, newer birds in a small pen inside the big pen for a few weeks they will acclimate to one another and then you can put them together.  I have also heard that if you take out all the older birds and put in the new birds, wait about an hour and then reintroduce the older birds everything will be fine.  It has something to do with perceived territory in the older birds.
