    Just got some baby chicks. Keeping them in the house for now. House temp is at 70 degrees. Do the chicks still need a heat lamp.

    Yes, they need a heat lamp or other source of heat such as the heating pad method. They need an area of 95 degrees under a heat lamp that they can lay under to get warm. You need to get them one immediately.
