In the bay area, where I live, we just got our first break from 100+ degrees of weather every single day. On Wednesday, the 22nd, It's going to return back to 100 for about a week, what can I do to help my chickens not die of heat stroke, like 2 already have.?

Provide lots of shade, shaded water, cool water changed often, fans in coop moving cool air into one end and out the other side. Watermelon for a snack, and having shallow wide pans of shaded water half full to stand in and cool their feet. Do not put ACV in your water in hot weather, but do use electrolytes on the hottest days, but no more than several days.
