I typically run dry. Do not add water until I get about 27% and then keep below 35%.

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!

it really depends on the type eggs and your location.  for chicken eggs i dry incubate (no added water the first 18 days), my humidity stays in the low to mid 30s, quail eggs tend to dry out, especially button quail so i run a wick pad and keep it in the mid to upper 40s the first 14 days for them.  i try to keep it above 50 for hatching, i also just got my dedicated hatcher finished and it runs at 60 via a controller.
