    I dont use the wells on the bottom, they dry up to fast. Just get a plastic bowl and fill it with warm water and put it in the corner of the bator. I also get those colored sponges that you can find in the cleaning section at any walmart and put 2 of those in there too. This help put more moisture in the air and if when the eggs are hatching one happens to jump in the bowl it will be on the sponges. I have also taken an idea that another member posted once about foulding a couple paper towels and placing that on top of the sponges. Your humidity will go up nicely. I live in Iowa and I keep my humidity around 65 through the whole incubation and hatch time. As the chicks hatch the humidity will normally go up on its own as they dry. If I try to make it to high myself my hatches are real bad. Good luck Jenn
