We have an answer

The probe was wrong. The specialist probe, sold expressly for checking the temperature of an incubator,  was wrong. It was saying 37.5 degrees when the actual temperature was only 34 degrees.

I'm relieved that we have a reason. It's ironic that the problem was caused by us buying a probe and then calibrating based on what the probe said.

  1. How very sad. We've had a low hatch rate (3 out of 10) but never zero. Because of the potential inaccuracies of temperature and humidity controls, we're going to try test-weighing our eggs to make sure they're losing weight at the correct rate, then adjusting the incubator controls accordingly.
