Q.Please help me revive my chicks and hens?

wasatchcable1 added on July 7, 2017 | Answered

My hens and chicks are dying.. I read everywhere that they need full sun and are VERY drought tolerant. I watered them plenty and set them outside, in a terracotta pot, and I came back to work and they were burnt like, or brown. Definitely not root rot or anything because the soil was VERY dry. I had them out in the sun for 5 days. So that being said, I had them growing beautifully and perfectly and was worried about the root rot when I was researching the care on them. So how do I bring them back to life? They are still green in the middle and up through a little bit of the leaves, but they look so sad. These are one of my favorite plants. Please help?
Sorry for the long detailed story.

Intense sun and dry soil certainly can dry up even sun loving succulents.
You can gently remove the dead leaves from the plants.
Give them morning sun and shade them from the hottest part of the day.
