I would use a heat lamp about 18 inches high. Secure it to something that will not fail and let the lamp down. Make sure they have plenty of food and water! They are a blast!

Congratulations on your new babies. Mine are only 4 days old. I got them chick grit today and then tried to feed them a tomato---not impressed, some lettuce---not impressed, a hard boiled egg---so so. Guess they are just babies and only want the crumbles for now. Boy are they growing fast. Here they are beak to beak.
