    You will need to rewarm water through the night.

    Make sure you don't have it on shavings. Put on a towel..or blanket..then also cover the top. Keep an eye on it through the night. The babies should stay on..or near it.

    How old are these birds? How many are there? Are they in your house or in a different structure?

    Also maybe just keep it on low and put a towel on top of it.
