Brinsea's Mini ECO incubator is a fan assisted manual turn egg incubator holding up to 10 hens eggs or equivalent. The combination of proven electronic temperature control, fan assistance, carefully directed airflow and a specially made glass thermometer result in a machine which is deceptively sophisticated yet extremely easy to use. The Mini ECO comes factory set to the commonest incubation temperature but this can be adjusted if necessary. The high quality clear top allows you to see every second of an egg hatching from every angle. The Mini ECO is covered by Brinsea's free 2 year quarantee (just follow the user instructions to register online).
The Brinsea Mini ECO and Mini ADVANCE incubators are designed to be used by children as well as adults but they are not toys and children should only use them under adult supervision.  Both models run from 12v for safety and are supplied with a mains power adaptor.
Please note:  It is NOT possible to upgrade the Mini Eco and Mini Advance to become a Mini Advance EX as the control systems for each machine are different and they are not compatible with each other.

 
 
 

Brinsea's Mini ADVANCE incubator is a fan assisted egg incubator holding up to 7 eggs which are turned automatically. Up to 12 smaller eggs (e.g. pheasant or quail) can be accommodated using the optional small egg disk. The combination of a simple yet accurate menu driven digital control, fan assistance and carefully directed airflow  result in a machine which is deceptively sophisticated yet convenient and extremely easy to use. The digital display shows incubation temperature (in °C or °F), days remaining before hatch and turning status. The user can alter settings to control incubation temperature, temperature units, turning interval, turning angle, the number of days your eggs take to hatch from fresh and the high and low temperature alarm limits. If the number of days to hatch isn't known then the automatic turning can be controlled by the user and easily turned off when the first egg cracks.
The mini ADVANCE incubator can accomodate eggs up to 65mm in length. This includes most hens and ducks eggs, some turkey eggs but not goose eggs.
The high quality clear top allows you to see every second of an egg hatching from every angle. Brinsea's Mini incubators run at 12v for safety and are supplied with a mains power adaptor.Brinsea have now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for 2012 for proven increases in hatch rates. This feature turns the incubator’s heater and low temperature alarm off for a selected period but keeps the fan running. After the cooling period is complete the incubator reverts to normal temperature and the alarm is automatically reset. The Mini ADVANCE is covered by Brinsea's free 2 year quarantee (just follow the user instructions to register online).

The Octagon 20 Eco incubator is a simple but high quality egg incubator using the same tough and insulted cabinet as the Octagon 20 Advance coupled to a simple proven electronic temperature control to give reliable hatching results of a wide range of species with minimum fuss. Supplied without the optional autoturn cradle (see below).Control system. 
The Octagon 20 Eco controls temperature with high accuracy with a proven proportional band electronic controller with easy tamper-proof adjustment. A flashing indicator shows that the incubation temperature is controlling steadily and temperature is monitored with a conventional but accurate liquid in glass thermometer. 
Cabinet The high quality incubator cabinet is entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes it tough and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss leading to lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The top of the incubator is clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks.                                  
Humidity and ventilation.
Air is circulated by a long life computer grade fan which, coupled with the unique grill with optimised air diffuser leads to extremely even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in two reservoirs in the base.                Egg Handling
To accommodate eggs of different sizes the Octagon 20 Eco's removable egg tray is supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and so maximise the number of eggs that can be held. Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated and a guide to the numbers of a range of popular species which will fit is give in the specification table. Eggs are turned during incubation as the whole incubator is rocked from side to side – hence the Octagonal cabinet ends. This can be done manually at least twice each day or this turning is performed automatically if the incubator is supplied with the optional Autoturn Cradle (part number AD20A) which turns the eggs hourly.
 
 
 
Octagon 20 Eco Incubator Complete With Auto Turn Cradle. 
 
 
Octagon 20 Eco & Advance AutoTurn Cradle.
 
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS JUST THE CRADLE

Egg turning with all models in the Octagon range is achieved by rotating the whole cabinet through 90° (45° on either side on an hourly cycle).
The separate turning cradle keeps all moving parts outside the incubator away from moisture and dust leaving the enclosure easier to clean.

It also means that there is nothing to trap or injure emerging chicks if you forget to stop the turning.

The incubator lifts easily out of the cradle allowing it to stand horizontal for hatching.

 
 
 
The Octagon 20 Advance incubator builds on decades of success of earlier Octagon 20's with an all new intelligent design combining latest digital and materials technology with Brinsea's 30 years of experience. The result is an easy to use, accurate and high performance incubator with exactly the right controls to give the hatching results you need. 
The Octagon 20 Advance is also available in EX form which includes full automatic control of humidity.  This flexibility and value mean the Octagon 20 series remains the ideal choice whether you are breeding macaws or geese, hens or peafowl.
The specially designed control system is the heart of the Octagon 20 Advance. In normal mode it shows the incubation temperature and humidity to very high levels of accuracy. A simple menu allows the user to change the incubation settings. Features include high and low temperature alarm and choice of °C or °F. The menu also allows full control of humidity with the optional Advance Humidity Pump (see Octagon 20 Advance EX).

Octagon 20 Advance EX.
Improved control for valuable and hard-to-incubate eggs. 
Humidity is a crucial factor in the success (or otherwise) of eggs and the EX version of the Octagon 20 Advance puts accurate control of humidity in the hands of the user.
The Octagon 20 Advance EX is an Octagon 20 Advance incubator with the matching Humidity Pump module to maintain total control of the incubation humidity level and additional foam lined egg dividers to protect fragile or damaged eggs and remove the any effects of jolts from the turning system. 
The standard Octagon 20 Advance provides a readout of incubation humidity but requires the user to alter humidity to achieve the ideal average level. The EX version with the Humidity Pump effectively maintains the humidity level precisely at the level the user sets irrespective of changes in room humidity and so overcomes problems that can commonly lead to eggs failing to hatch – especially in the latest stages of incubation. The Humidity Pump includes an external water reservoir eliminating  the chances of water in the incubator harbouring bacteria.
The Humidity Pump module is designed to work seamlessly with the Octagon 20 Advance and can be purchased later as an upgrade from Octagon 20 Advance to Octagon 20 Advance EX.

Hatchmaker Incubator. 240v.
Whilst the Hatchmaker can be used effectively to incubate from day one through to hatching, the lack of automatic turning makes it more suitable for reptiles or as a hatcher.
Temperature control is provided by Brinsea's proven proportional electronic system which gives very accurate and stable control unaffected by voltage variations and changes in barometric pressure.
The sensor and thermometer are mounted in a swivel clip which facilitates easy adjustment to suit a wide range of egg sizes.
Temperature adjustment is made by turning an externally mounted spindle. This multi-turn device allows very fine adjustment of temperature and is not easily turned accidentally.
Each machine is moulded from integrally skinned structural polyurethane which has a core of thermal insulation and hard, durable, impervious surfaces making it readily washable and tough enough to withstand scrubbing.
Polyurethane is amongst the toughest of plastics and must not be confused with cheap, fragile alternatives like expanded polystyrene. The excellent thermal properties of polyurethane foam result in low heat losses and low power consumption.
