How old are they? You have to realize that hatching is exhausting for baby chicks and they sleep a lot in their first days. They can even fall sleep in middle of eating and tumble head first into the feeder. For this reason please put some clean marbles or pebbles in their water dish, so they don't accidentally drown.
I have to say your chickens look like peas in a pod. Please keep us updated with photos till they are old enough to sex. They appear to be "Yellow peeps," but, in early days a lot of breeds look the same. Please do not have any for lunch or snacks until we let you know if you have any cockerels.
They look like a meat breed. Perhaps Cornish?
