Possible sick baby chicks?

I had an emergency pecking issue, which resulted in me moving my 5- 6 week old polish babies outside in the bigger coop ( by themselves).

I’ve been treating them for pecking issue which was difficult to get under control, but along with that that two days ago we started to get severe storms in our area. They were kept in a dry place , but the humidity skyrocketed in our area

Ever since the storms started The chicks have been more sunken with their tails down, and sometimes chirp. Their appetite is fine, and when I come in to the coop into the coop they seem to perk up, I see them playing and running in the coop often

Could always be due to stress between moving them to the new environment and treating them for The pecking issue or does it sound like an illness?

They look cold! Moving to a new area is always stressful for birds as well! So if there are no major symptoms I wouldn’t worry too much!😉
