It's my understanding that pecking order issues are ongoing, kind of like how human siblings will continue to argue even once they're all grown up. If they aren't drawing blood or causing obvious injury, I wouldn't worry about it. The worst of it will probably work itself out at some point.

What kind of chickens are they? It's hard to tell the sex at such a young age. Maybe you have a few roosters?
