Personally, I would start with a dry incubator and see what humidity runs dry. If you are not in a high elevation and the humidity stays above 25% preferably 30% (in my opinion), I would recommend running dry and checking the air cells for when and how  to adjust. If you can't run 30% ish with no water, I'd add a wet sponge. I don't use my water wells until hatch time. I use this method: http://letsraisechickens.weebly.com/blog/throw-away-those-incubator-manuals-understanding-and-controlling-humidity

 

Just be wary that unless you have checked the bator's thermometer and hygrometer they could be way off. The only way to be sure is to have your own checked and accurate therms/hygros in the bator.
