Me and the mrs felt these soft lumps on the right side of both chicks chests, looking it up, it appears to be the crop, should these be filling up or what should their condition be normally?...

Thank you in advance!

As they eat through out the day they will fill up and should be quite full by the time they go to bed at night. They should be empty by morning, but if not, then there may be some impaction issues.
