    Welcome to BYC!
    What breed did you purchase and from where?

    They are still quite young at 5 weeks, you may have to repost pictures again in a few weeks.

    I can not tell if they are boys or girls.
    sorry.

    If this container home for now?
    At 5 weeks my chicks have all had way more feathers than yours.
    Make sure you are not making them TOO Hot with that lamp.
    Being too hot can cause them to feather in slower.
