    My buff might hatch some eggs and they are going to mostly live in a big crate until they get a little bigger (I'm going to let them out there not going to be locked in forever just so you know)since its getting colder do they need a heat lamp with there mum with them?

    Mumma hen should keep them sufficiently warm.

    If you get a chance, gently slip your hand under your broody hen to see just how warm it is; they are like little ovens [​IMG]
