Agree to disagree on temperature fluctuation being more acceptable then humidity for chicken eggs. When I set my eggs the I never adjust my temperature setting after it has come up to temp and measured by my secondary thermometer. Also if temp needs to be adjusted that tells me the room the incubator is in is not even, due to outside environmental factors. Eggs should reach about 13% average weight loss before hatching so in order for that, humidity needs to be adjusted accordingly (also each egg loses weight at a different rate). If this were peafowl eggs that’d be another story. Thanks for your opinion, but I would like to know what temp the OP has set the eggs at, brand of incubator and if they used a secondary thermometer and hygrometer. Those are the most basic questions in trying to solve a failed hatch.Ive had more luck with the temp being able to flex a bit in personal experince, that could be just because i generally do not flex any of the temp or humidity though. both of them are very important and should be researched beforehand however.
