does the incubator have a egg turner or our you turning by hand? have you tried another thermometer to be sure the temp is correct same with the humidity. and what do you call a bad rate? need more info please.

X2...more info and we can help better.

The only thing I see is that's too much humidity during early incubation if you are running 65% the whole time. The first 14 days should be run at 40-55% humidity. 65% is perfect for lockdown (after day 14) but isn't good for incubation.
