Please don't clip their wings. Just put something over the brooder--extra window screens, plywood, bird netting or a chickenwire screen. Heat lamps shouldn't be less than 18 inches from the floor (or pine shavings,) but put a thermometer down under and adjust it to what you want. The chicks will just huddle up under the light if they are cold.
