    These are mine around 3-4 weeks old (I'd have to double check). I was surprised at how fast they got feathers too:

    mine are 3 almost 4 weeks old and they look like that (featherwise, but mine are off-white colored) and its been upper 60's to mid 70's and they have been out in the coop all day and all night for the past couple days.
