The Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance is the solution to the incubation of small numbers of eggs. This easy to use high performance incubator provides the control and reliability that ensures top hatch rates, time after time. 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. Incubation settings are set via a simple menu. Features include periodic cooling, high and low temperature alarm and choice of °C or °F bas well as full control of humidity with the optional Advance Humidity Pump. The high quality cabinet is entirely injection molded from high grade ABS which makes it durable and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled for lower power consumption and better temperature distribution. The top is clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks. Air is circulated by a long life computer grade fan which, coupled with the unique grill with optimized air diffuser leads to extremely even temperature. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by two water reservoirs in the base or automatically by the optional Advance Humidity Pump. To accommodate eggs of different sizes the removable egg tray is supplied with adjustable dividers maximizing the number of eggs that can be held. Eggs as small as Inch to as large as geese can be incubated at the same time. Eggs are turned hourly as the whole incubator is rocked from side to side by the Auto turn Cradle. Cooling is an entirely natural process and recent research has also shown that hatch rates can actually increase significantly as a result of cooling. For this reason Brinsea now incorporate a cooling option in all their Advance incubators. This flexibility and value make the Octagon 20 Advance the ideal choice whether you are breeding macaws or geese, hens or peafowl and like all Brinsea products it comes with a full 2 year warranty.

UPDATE: Do keep in mind that while you can FIT 24 chicken eggs in the incubator for days 1-18, it doesn't mean you can comfortably HATCH all of them. Once it's lockdown time (Day 18), eggs need to be placed on their side. New hatchlings will also need room to stretch their legs a bit. I'd say you can hatch 12 eggs at most, comfortably.
UPDATE AFTER 2 HATCHES: I'll be getting the Humidity Pump. It pains me to shell out more money, but humidity issues between Days 18-21 are drastically reducing my hatch rates. The sponges I've been using tend to bring the humidity up too high, then they dry out way before Day 21, and then I still have to open the lid, and add more liquid. My eggs are all viable on Day 18, and a huge number are not making it to Day 21 due to humidity variations. I don't want to worry about humidity any more!
