Why do chicks and eggs have to be kept so warm and humid?

Temperature and humidity are natures triggers for embryo development. The optimum temperature for growth of the embryo is 100.5 F with a humidity of 60%. Embryo growth will start at lower temperatures however it will be slower and viability of the chick over a longer development within the egg is greatly reduced.

A seed is a small embryonic plant enclosed in a covering called the seed coat, usually with some stored food . It is the product of the ripened ovule of gymnosperm and angiosperm plants which occurs after fertilization and some growth within the mother plant.An embryo is a multicellular diploid eukaryote in its earliest stage of development , from the time of first cell division until birth, hatching or germination . In humans, it is called an embryo until about eight weeks after fertilization (i.e. ten weeks after the last menstrual period or LMP), and from then it is instead called a fetus .
