My chicks are fighting but they can’t live without eachother!

I’m extremely worried about my chicks, they have been fine up until one of them started to bully another one and had it by the neck, holding on very aggressively, but....the twist is...I separated them and the one that was being bullied jumped over the divider and joined him where he was. They can’t live without each other but I’m worried about the one getting bullied. We don’t yet know their genders.

I need urgent advice! Please! :(

What are their ages?

If newly hatched, I would help them eat and drink.

If older, they might not have enough space.

This probably means there is a rooster in your bunch. It should be okay but if anything happens, let us know.
Ok thank you very much! We don’t know their genders and it’s highly possible the one that is pecking the other is a roo, it has displayed some very roo qualities!
