I have 5 buff orpingtons. One started laying 3 days ago got an egg every day since. Should I refridgerate them right away when I get them? Also I'm thinking about putting a brooder lampin the coop for heat when it gets colder.Will this be ok or will the extra light affect them when it get dark earlier. I thought about leaving the light on all night. Thanks

Unless you want to incubate them then yes. Refrigerate whenever you find them.
Happy egg collecting.

putting a heat lamp in the coop is a good idea but i would get a red one that way it would be easier for her to sleep at night. You might also want to let them out that way they still know when it is night and when it is day.
