Help!

I have a 5 week old blue laces red Wyandotte cockerel and I think he's showing signs of aggression. I've read that when they put their heads down, run, and jump on other chickens it's a sign of aggression which he does. Also sometimes he pulls feathers out of my other rooster but then they lay next to eachother and cuddle. I don't want to get rid of either and I'm hoping its normal.

at five weeks old I don't know I would say aggression because most chicks don't start squabbling until they are older than that unless space is an issue.

I wouldn't call it aggression, more like sorting out their pecking order. I consider this behavior to be relatively normal as long as its not excessive.
