Is it alright to pair rabbits with chickens?

My chickens get out sometimes, and when they do, they go up to my bunny cage and cluck at him. Should I let them interact? I'm afraid they'll peck him and hurt him.

I've let my rabbits out to run in my chicken shed. The chickens get a bit spooked initially, but generally they ignore each other. I haven't seen any chickens peck at them.

Your chickens are probably alarm calling at your rabbit as they probably don't know what it is. That would be my guess.
