Last year the humidity was so high the chicks were getting too big to break out.  I used to get hatching eggs from The Wernlas Collection (now sadly retired) and they never added water.  They maintained that a lot of incubators come from places like Italy where the air holds much less moisture than it does on this wet and windy island!
