I didn't. I mean, there's was just no way I could. I didn't have anything set up for it. I had no plans to even do this, but my broody hen gave up on sitting.  So, I just got together the stuff I had on hand, and let it sit for a week....and just hoped that it would be ok!  But, today, I kept a wet paper towel under the egg and a wet wash cloth in there kinda wrapped partially around it.  Plus I had my bathroom door closed with a tub full of water to keep the humidity up so it wouldn't get shrink-wrapped in the egg.
