If they were kept in a cage previously, this could have helped them "hold it" better considering that dogs have a tendency to not want to soil where they sleep. That's the main purpose behind using dog crates for potty training dogs. If now, they have their own room with beds and they are no longer kept in cages, this may have triggered them to eliminate. You may have to choose a potty training method and stick with it. 1) You can keep on crating them until they are fully potty trained and monitor them when out of their crates so they can be escorted outside as needed to their designated potty area (you will need to work more on creating positive associations with being crated though) or 2) you may have to create an indoor potty area using a play pen lined up with pee pads or 3) you can train them to use a doggy door and keep them nearby so when they need to potty they know what to do.
