So o have 14 eggs in my incubator and i done a hatch about 4or 5 weeks ago and none hatched :( so i decided to try again so i put 14 in on saturday night and today i realised that the incubator seems to be goin up and down a few degree from the recomended temperature and i was just wondering will this affect my chances of the chicks hatching and would this be y none of the other chicks hatched the last time?'

Thanks :)

Not as much as the wrong mean temp.
It could be that your thermometers are off.
Unless you have reliable ones I'd try a degree or two lower for a hatch and if that doesn't work try a degree or two higher than the first hatch.
