I recently got my first chicks :) I have a small flock of four. I ended up with three chicks and a baby guinea. I have been reading horror stories with, well, horror. I am now completely terrified that my guinea will hurt my chicks. So far, nothing awful has happened (I've had them for about 3 weeks). From what I can tell, there's just normal chicken behavior. My guinea does not appear to be at the top of the pecking order. However, will she get more aggressive with age? They are all in the same brooder now, so will she just see them as her "family"? Any opinions would be great. Thanks!

I would think if they are raised together as little chicks, they would be compatible. I have seen people do it with peafowl and they get along. Congrats on your new babies!
