    So lets say its already 45%-55% humidity in my incubator without water...can I just incubate like that or should I still put water?

    I would leave it, just keep an eye on it in case it drops lower.

    Hi,

    I run my incubators dry for the first 15 days, Humidity often falls below 40%, but I've never had a problem with hatch rates I've had many a 50/55 or 53/55.

    Hi,

    On just about everything I incubate. I only add water to Duck or geese eggs, but even then only on day 10.
