Have you kept them at 93-99F for 37 days? If so, that could be the problem. They should be at 90-95F the first week and then reduce the temp 5 degrees F each week after that and should be off heat when fully feathered around 6 weeks. They are most likely overheating and very dehydrated. I would give them electrolytes and reduce heat to 70 and then acclimate them to your weather.
