    Welcome to BYC. If you are providing a heat source, they should be fine in your 'critter camper'. Make sure that they are maintained dry and draft free.

    Agree - dry, draft free. Straw (not hay) is also a good insulator. You might buy a bale and give them some nice, deep bedding. Also, be careful that your heat lamp is totally secure and safely installed and not close to anything flammable!! Although you want them to eat mostly their feed, you can also give them some corn, which will help them to keep warm. They are cute! All the best.
