Sounds like they are cold. Raise the heat and see if they do better. Usually huddling and crying is a sound of uncomfortable

There wonderful aren't they. All of us newbies worry way to much I am sure. But, over caring can't be all bad! :p
Usually if they huddle togeather, to cold, if they all get away from light to hot.
