At 9 weeks old the puffing up behavior is pecking order related. Pullets might go as far as a sharp peck to emphasize their point, but rarely take it further. Cockerels, on the other hand, will escalate to stare downs and sparing.

Your chick's comb is still very small and pale. I think it's a pullet.

Pullet. Just because she has no problem putting the boys in their place doesn't mean she's a he. She'll likely just be your lead hen that doesn't take guff off of anyone.
