Hi there, what's going on with those bare spots on the back of the brown chick? Is she getting pecked or doing that to herself?

Anyhow, hold them lots and have fun with them is my advice. This is a good place to ask questions, a lot of experience and kindness here.

I would suggest getting those water and feeders up off ground level. Set them on a brick and later try to hang them so that you can raise them as they grow. Always cleaning them out will become a pain sooner or later. You can buy nipples off ebay for cheap and attach them to the bottom of a bucket. Lots of other ways also.

Thank you for all the advise so far! I think the spots on the larger birds is just from them loosing there down and growing big girl feathers.
