    After my last unsuccessful hatch i,m now thoroughly testing my digital incubator before i set any more eggs. heres the problem
    i,ve put the probe of my thermometer which i,ve put the hatching tray, to get 37.5 on my thermometer i have to set the incubator to 41.6. has anyone else had problems with this? should i just go with the probe thermometer temp?
