    now that the babies have hatched should I put a heat lamp in to help the Momma out or will Momma keep them warm all by her self????They are in a room at about 62 degrees...I dont want to over heat momma

    The hen should be able to keep the chicks warms without a heatlamp since the room is 62 degrees. Congrads on the chicks.

    Yep, she will be fine. I don't give mom a lamp unless it gets to be in the low thirties.

    Don't give any heat. She will do good by herself.
