    I am no expert at incubators, but I would guess that the temperature controls on your oven are not tight enough to keep the 99.5 + - 0.5 degrees needed for the eggs.

    You may get more responses if you post this in a more appropriate forum category such as Raising Backyard Chickens - Incubating and Hatching Eggs.

    Good luck!
