    I think i might have a rooster on my hands. I accidently stepped on the foot on a chick, (she is hurt, thatnkfully) and IT immidiately ran over, jumped on my foot and started pecking at it when IT heard the loud peeps of the other chick. (i felt so bad!). IT is also the boss. He/She is only 2 weeks old, so i dunno....

    PLEASE ANSWER!

    It is hard to tell based on behavior if a small chick is male or female. It might be male, but then again, it might be the alpha female. Why don't you post a photo and see if anyone can tell from that?
