Science Fair Project

So for my science fair project i want to incubate chicken eggs. i have my eggs and i want to build an incubator. What do they have to have in it? I saw a picture of one that had spunges in it. What is that for? is it so they can drink? What size light bulb do i need?

Thanks,

~~Natalie

The sponge is for humidity.
