    Add more water. The fan is helping to evaporate the water. There should be a constant supply of water in the bator to keep the eggs from sticking to the inside of the shell.

    i am keeping the temp at 100 and the humidity at 55% im wondering if its normal to have to open it that often? it seems that without the fan it was like once a week

    Your hum is way to high, should be 35% - 40%

    Take out the water and let it dry up and then see what you hum is, if it drops below 25% add a tad bit of water !!

    Here is some info on dry incubation.... https://www.backyardchickens.com/LC-DryIncubation.html

    If
    you keep it that high the chicks might drowned in there shell.
