Product Description

Brinsea incubator is used to hatch eggs, and has fully automatic egg turning and autostop two days prior to hatching for maintaining embryo health. A microcontroller manages all incubator functions, including temperature, temperature alarms, days to hatch, and turning status, through a menu on the digital display. Settings can be adjusted to alter temperature, temperature units (Celsius or Fahrenheit), days to hatch, and high and low temperature alarm limits. The incubator has fan-assisted airflow to evenly heat eggs, and an egg chamber with clear sides to view hatching eggs. The incubator includes a rotating disk with capacity for seven hen or duck eggs or for eggs up to 65.0mm in length. (A rotating disk for 12 smaller eggs, such as pheasant or quail, is sold separately.) A central water reservoir provides humidity for the incubation process. The cabinet of the incubator is made of antimicrobial polyurethane plastic for durability and resistance to bacterial contamination. Polyurethane is nonconductive and has good abrasion, chemical, and UV radiation resistance. It is also resistant to oil, weather, ozone, heat, electricity, tearing, and various chemicals. The incubator operates on 12.0V from a main transformer (included), and consumes up to 18.0 watts of electricity. The incubator measures 165.0 x 222.0mm/6.5 x 8.0 inches (H x D), and weighs 0.95kg/2.1lb. (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; D is width, the horizontal distance from front to back.)

Brinsea Products, Inc. manufactures bird and reptile breeding products, including incubators, brooders, and accessories. The company, founded in 1976, is headquartered in Titusville, FL and meets International Organization of Standardization (ISO) standard 9002.

It's set it and forget it!

The incubator maintains the temperature and humidity perfectly, seven out of seven eggs hatched, and all are healthy chicks.

I photographed them and wrote a note to Brinsea customer service.

I bought this for eggs I won on ebay this summer. I hatched Easter Egger chickens in this incubator. I bought this incubator and the one you had to hand turn. The eggs I hand turned had the same hatch rate as the eggs in this device. I incubated 7 eggs in each incubator (the other hatching silkies)and in both lost 2 eggs. Out of 14 eggs I hatched 10, 5 Easter Eggers and 5 silkies. One Easter Egger egg I lost was a pink double yolker and when one embryo died, the other died shortly after. The others were duds when candled at day 7. You have to keep a close eye on the water level and refill to the level you need, there is no alarm for that, but other than that this incubator was well worth the money. During the first week I was keeping an eye on the eggs when they turned because some were not laying in the direction needed but were turning to point the wrong end up. I could see that as being a possible source of error, but I think you should be keeping a close enough eye on the eggs to control the water level to catch and correct that. When the eggs had enough weight to them they turned the way they were suppose to on their own. I received everything pictured with my order, and I had a good hatch rate seeing as my eggs came through the mail. The incubator can't hatch eggs that haven't been fertilized, so I see this device as being 100% effective, every normal egg that made it past 7 days made it to 21 and hatched. The double yolker most likely would have died even under a hen. I posted videos of my chicks hatching on youtube. If you search youtube for incubating eggs, you'll see the Brinsea incubators being used by many people. When I hatch eggs in the future, I plan on reusing my Brinsea.

I just finished incubating a set of 7 chicken eggs (6 rhode island reds and 1 easter egger). All but one egg hatched. The dud was an odd color, was underweight and we almost didn't bother incubating it in the first place but timing forced us to go ahead and we figured, why not? I think that egg was doomed from the start. We had a 6 hour power outage at one point. When the power came back on it picked up right where it left off and didn't miss a beat. No reprogramming was required. This was our first try at incubating.

Brinsea sells 3 different models of these mini 7-egg incubators. The mini eco is cheaper and only regulates temperature and humidity. The one I am reviewing is the mini advance which does temp and humidity but also automatically turns eggs. It can be set for the time interval you want and there are a few different angle options as well. The turning auto shuts off when you are close to hatching. You can set alarms for when the temperature strays too low or high but we never had a problem with this. The temperature always hovered between 99.5 degF and 99.6 degF. The only regulation we had to do was to occasionally (about every 3 days) lift the lid off and pour water into the center dish to maintain humidity levels. The third incubator is the mini EX and it is super expensive, but with more customizing options for hatching exotic birds. I really think its smart to get an auto turning model, can you really force yourself to be there to turn eggs every 4 hours for 21 days?

Really, I can't say enough good things about it!

So many people review these products after one hatch, and that doesn't give you a real perspective. I've had mine for a year and finished the 8th hatch. I hatched all local non-shipped eggs. Here are the results. I have eliminated infertile eggs from the results because no incubator could hatch those.

1. March 2013 7/7 100%
2. April 2013 5/6 83%
3. May 2013 4/7 57%
4. June 2013 3/6 50%
5. October 2013 7/7 100%
6. October 2013 9/9 100% -manually turned
7. February 2014 8/8 100% manually turned
8. March 2014 6/6 100%

Here are several tips I learned using the Brinsea Mini Advance that aren't in the instructions.
-If hatching chickens, set the angle to 15 if using the automatic turner mode.
-Lockdown right when Day 3 turns to Day 2. If you wait too long into Day 2, you can have pips already. If you lock down when Day 4 turns to Day 3, if you have a draggy hatch that stretches past Day 21, the center water reservoir CAN dry out and humidity can drop.
-If you take the tray out, you can fit 2-3 more chicken eggs manually turning them. If you mark the eggs with x and o on each side, start the hatch manually turning the eggs 3 times a day (Morning, afternoon, and before you go to bed) You can start the hatch this way, candle them at Day 7, and toss the infertile eggs (they light up like a light bulb) and finish the remaining eggs on automatic turning mode. If all eggs are fertile, you may need to finish the hatch manually turning them. I know this seems to defeat the purpose of having an automatic turner in your incubator, but this may benefit people who do a few hatches and are finding infertile eggs from their pairings.

Verified Purchase
Purchased for kids to enjoy baby chicks this spring and was very simple. Hate to sound like an infomercial but basically we put the eggs in and kept water at recommended level (only had to put water in a few times) and it was more like "set it and forget it". 4 of 7 eggs hatched on day 0 of count down timer. I don't think the 3 eggs that didn't hatch were fertile. While the unit is very sturdy and state of the art, price still seems a bit high. Good fun and highly recommend.
