    I have heard two things when it comes to putting water in an incubator. Do you keep water in there from day one, or do you wait and add it when you take the eggs off the turner?

    I keep water all the time according to my incubators instructions to maintain a humidity level of about 40% until lockdown.

    Quote:I follow the manufacturer's instructions. Water in from day 1. More in at lockdown.
