    Hovabator instructions say fill the inner trough for incubating and both inner and outer for hatching. This may or may not give proper humidity depending on the room conditions where the incubator is operated. Here's the Hova instructions if you don't have them.

    A lot will depend on the humidity where you live. That will determine how much water you need to add. I don't ever have to add as much as the instructions say because most of the time our natural humidity is higher. You should do some trail and error before you put your first eggs in to figure it out.
