    Wait another week and see what happens.

    You may have gotten shipped something other than broilers. At this point, you should be able to obviously see that they've grown, the little yellow wing feathers should be coming in, and they should be eating like crazy. Like Cassie said, I'd wait another week, but I don't blame you for being suspicious at this point. You can almost watch those things grow.

    How about size/feathering? My current batch is exactly the same age, and I swear, they've almost doubled in size since day one.
