    I've had my eggs in the incubator for 14 days. I added water to the reservoir on day 1. On day 4 I had to refill the reservoir cause it had dried up. Three days later I had to fill it up again on day 7. That was one week ago today and I haven't had to add any more water to it yet. It's constant humidity is 45%-50%. Is this a sign of anything like dead eggs or just how the climate is right now?

    Dead eggs would not have anything to do with it. I've only visited Portland once, but from its reputation, I'd suspect it is your climate.
