Hi and welcome to BYC.  Pecking can be caused by a number of things - I'd suggest typing "causes of pecking" or something like that in the search box for further details. Its a little difficult to follow up when members are not online at the same time as those posing a question.

 

If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken. 
 
 
Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend  Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.
 
All the best

That's a pretty big, sore looking area on your black chicken...it doesn't look like molting from what I can see. How big is your coop and what are you feeding them? Also, have you checked them over for mites?

 

Some more details and maybe a closer picture would be helpful.

Mites or feather picking. Check the birds and the coop over for mites. Also make sure that your birds have enough room. The bare minimum for Leghorn sized birds is 4 sq ft of coop space, 10 sq ft of run space per bird. Larger, dual purpose breeds need more room. Smaller, bantam breeds need less.

Also looks like the black chicken has a bald area in front of the tail.  Does the white one has the same sores?  If the brown birds are untouched, it could be them - doing all the damage.  Do you have a rooster that is overbreeding them?  I would separate the brown ones from the two with sores or injuries, so they have a chance to heal.
