Yeah i guess that would be normal if the mom's not really scolding them. I know that kittens can be really rough on each other at that age and theyre finding out how much thier siblings will tolerate and what they can do. Also if they were in the wild they would be practicing for finding out who's going to be the top cat, and as long as theres no blood it should be fine. My kittens would play fight all the time. And yeah, you said they all have thier own bowls and stuff so it isnt a personal space thing. Also the crying out in pain may just be a play threat.
Well dont take my word on it im just trying to help some.

My kittens are 11 weeks now and have been doing the same thing for awhile now, mainly the 2 males! I hear crying all the time and they chase each other then when they are tired, they lay down together and sleep....

It sounds like they're doing normal play fighting (I know other posters have said this, but just another person to calm your nerves!), so don't worry too much. Kittens rarely hurt eachother during their play fighting! Also, if there was a distinct runt in the litter, watch him/her, they're usually the ones to start the fights!
