    I am guessing that you are using one of the Chick Bators. It has a clear dome, and a yellow bottom, and holds 2-3 chicken eggs.


    By the way,
    The water isn't evaporating that much, because it is probably cold, It is in the bottom of the incubator, and the heat from the light bulb rises. If you think this is a thing that needs to be addressed, I would move the bulb closer to the water, to get the water warmer, and evaporate faster.

    Isn't the light bulb attached to a moveable metal bracket. I thought it was, and you could just move it closer to one to the legs filled with water.
