Now what do I do? I moved them to another area. They were receiving pretty heavy afternoon sun (way heavier than I initially thought).
The new spot gets morning sun and partial afternoon shade. Should I just bring them inside? My back porch gets good sun. Thankfully I am pretty sure they will survive.

You probably don't need to put them inside if you can just set them in some shade for them to recover. If there's no shade available you can always cover them with shade cloth during the day and remove cloth at nite and then recover the next day until they recover. The morning sun, partial afternoon sun spot might be good to put them in first without shade cover when they look better.

I agree I wouldn't bring them in the house either, but good idea to get them out of full sun.

Thanks everyone. They are moved to a shadier area and I sprinkled a little water in the soil of the drier ones. I am excited! A few have some babies starting.

That is a good sign Jamila. Hopefully they will adjust and give you many offsets.

Hurray! We love little bitty chicks! Hope they bounce back quickly for you.

Moxie, that happened to me also, and thankfully my weather changed, back to its normal spring overcast skies!! They really do bounce back once they are out of the stressing condition(s) Love the babies!!! Hurray! Glad you are providing shade!
Cheers
