I have read about the terrible heat being experienced in Pakistan.  I honestly don't know how anyone can survive that.  I know in the hot US states, they use  lots of man made shade, low pans of water  - for birds to stand in -  cool feet cool the whole bird.   It's a miracle than any eggs hatch in such extreme temperatures.  I know you must be doing the very best you can.

 

I hope other people will see this and respond to you in more helpful ways.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
