    Are they almost feathered? How cold/warm is your home? What environment were they in before you got them, were they under light prior to you getting them? What were they being fed before you got them?​

    That sucks! So you really don't know what they were used to... I'd give them chick starter. If they are almost feathered and you are keeping them inside I would not worry about a heat lamp. If your home is cold and they still have a lot of chick down I would put them under a mild heat lamp.​

    I would put them under a light because they have been stressed and aren't all that old, it sounds like. I don't know seramas, though.

    feed them chick starter and get a brooder light from walmart for under 10 bucks. cover half the box and put a 40 watt bulb to start off. the temp should be around 80 to 85 degrees. if they are all close together under the light they might be too cold up the light to 60 watts. if thats too much heat they will lay just outside of the light to stay warm.
