    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.
