Do they both have feathered feet?

The browner one ( if it has feathered feet ) could be a Brahma or Pekin.
The lighter one could be a Pekin or Silkie.
How many toes do they have?
yes. the yellow one still has just the fuzzy feet, while the brown one has tiny triangle shaped feather on it's feet now that are the colors of it's wings. I believe the yellow has 3 toes and the brown has 4. thanks a bunch!

The white one looks like a White Cochin. The other one is probably a Buff Brahma. Cute chicks!

Well Silkies have 5 toes, so they are not Silkies. Not sure why your yellow has 3 toes!?! Perhaps you are getting confused? That one at the back is classed as a toe ( not just the three main ones ).
Well good luck on IDing them properly
.
thanks for all your help!! I was mistaken. couldn't see it's toes very well for all the feathers!! it does have 4 too.
I took them outside for the first time today and was able to get close-ups of their feet:
