It's Not the Heat, It's the Humidity
When incubating, there are two numbers that you need to keep in check- your temperature and your humidity. While a thermometer will measure the temperature within your incubator, a hygrometer is used to measure the humidity. Sometimes, it is assumed that as long as there is water in there, then your humidity is close enough. This is false.
Since egg shells are porous, this means that water will travel both into and out of the eggs. Having humidity that is too high can cause your eggs to be too soft, and can possibly drown your chicks before they even hatch! Having low humidity can cause your eggs to bind, or cause the shells to be too hard to hatch.
There is no set method for how much water to add to any incubator. Humidity can be affected by many variables such as the season, your elevation, and where you store your incubator. This means that it is important for you to have an accurate humidity gauge that can give you precise readouts at any time.
