4.  Chickens are pecking each others feathers help!

There are many causes for this so go through the list and start narrowing it down.  Most common is "Pecking Order"  This is very common but they shouldn't be pecking at each other for ever.  Next common is lighting. Sometime to much light can cause them to start attacking each other so do what you can to dim the lights down for a few weeks and see if they calm down.  Space.  Last most common reason is they are to cramped together and need more room.  If you can provide them some more space try this option out. Lastly if nothing is working you can buy chicken peepers.  This helps them not to look at each other and eliminate aggression problems.

5.  How do I catch my chickens they have escaped the pen!

Food!  Put some yummies in a box or their pen or even in a bucket your holding and shake it.  They should come running almost every time.  One inside you can close the door on them.  If it doesn't work right away try again a little later when they are hungry.
