Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan    Unfortunately your birds do not know where they live yet.  Best for new fowl to be kept strictly in the coop for several days, then be allowed out into a pen until they realize where they live and where to lay eggs (you may want to put a lock on the coop door to prevent a reoccurrence).     You may be able, if they are quite tame, to lure them in with feed, but be prepared to watch where they roost, they are relatively...
You do not need to feed the chick anything, or give it water - they continue to reabsorb their yolk sac for several days following hatching.  That is why newly hatched chicks can be shipped in the mail.   You  may want to visit the Learning Center, there is a very good article there called Chicks 101 that may be helpful.
Still scaredy cats - just afraid of the doctors 
Yes, and I see they must pay $189 per year for the registration
