There's nothing wrong with your birds. They're just molting, that's very normal, nothing to worry about. How old are they?

just give them some extra protein...this will help with the feathering..growing new feathers takes up a lot of protein..
a higher grade feed with higher protein %..(or gamebird or grower feed mixed in with regular feed)
cooked eggs
mealy worms (purchased)
a little yogurt

but do check them well for mites.
