You may also find this thread here helpful: https://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/threads/sow-behaviour.38561/

It very much depends on the individual personalities, but as long as the younger top sow can't compete with the older sow, the bonding should hopefully go OK. You are likely to see the worst of the dominance behaviour from the sow just ranked above the youngsters as she wants to make clear that she stays above in the hierarchy.
