    Is this during incubation? Or at hatch?

    Below 50% humidity during incubation is fine.

    At hatch, i would think that a sponge sitting in a water tray would work.

    I used crumpled up paper towels in water filled trays.

    (I used a different kind of incubator, and I have hatched ducks and chicks...never quail, but I would think the principles would be the same.)
