Are you getting any feathers?
Its been few weeks so your baby chicks should have put on a good amount of feathers. Be sure you are raising the heat lamp a few inches weekly. This not only encourages them to put on their feathers but makes sure they are being acclimated gradually to life with out a lamp! I don't know about you, but I don't have a heated hen house so they have to live the guest bedroom for now! Watch your chicks closely to make sure they are not huddling and indicating that perhaps you have moved it a bit too high.
