Welcome to the forum.

Yes, that is too hot. For the first week, it should be no hotter than 90 to 95 degrees, then drop it 5 degrees per week.

Too much heat can kill the chicks. I would prefer them to be a little cool than too hot.

Does your coop have a run? Is there a protected place that would be cooler that they can have access to? 105 is pretty hot for them to be cooped up in with no way to get anywhere cooler.
