    That is exactly why it is done as it is hot and humid that close to the equator. Also you drop a few oz when you go to weigh in.

    im switching back to water cups. I swear every day for the past two weeks about half the birds have either knocked their waterers over or filled them full of straw. The other day weed eating by the pens I watched almost every one of them get knocked over. Should have filled them after the yard work.
