These are three of my 17 from my last hatch exactly 5 weeks ago today. The father is a Speckeld Sussex.

I've raised them in a brooder in the coop. This weekend, the parents will be put in a chicken tractor and the brooder will be removed from the coop. I plan to leave them locked in the coop for a week or so before I allow them out into the run. I know this is still juvenile plumage and the final plumage will change, but I thought I'd show what I have. To think, five weeks ago, they fit inside an egg.
