Brinsea Mini Eco Incubator

Low-Cost, Low-Hassle Egg Incubator

With a capacity of only 10 eggs, this incubator is perfect for classroom use. It provides a high visibility cabinet, fan assisted airflow, and a glass thermometer. Preset for chickens, the incubator temperature is easily adjusted using the electronic temperature controls provided. Although this unit does not offer automatic turning, the price point is low enough that you can justify turning them yourself for the additional savings. If automatic egg turning is a must for you, but you like the size and style of this model, then we recommend checking out the Mini Advance.

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.

IMPORTANT:- After hatching, the smallest chicks (e.g. quail) can be at risk from drowning in the water pots. It is advised that small pebbles or marbles are placed in each water pot before hatching to reduce this risk. This will not reduce the evaporation of the water if the level is maintained to just above the pebbles.

The Brinsea Mini incubator is a small, high quality, low cost, egg incubator combining ease of use, performance and exceptional value.

The three versions of the Mini give a wide choice of convenience, sophistication and price
but all provide the essential environmental control necessary for successful egg hatching.
The clear walls of the egg chamber mean fantastic visibility of the hatching eggs without lifting the lid and the fan-assisted design coupled with detailed airflow analysis results exceptionally even heating of the eggs.

The Mini Eco holds 10 hens eggs (or equivalent) and provides the fine temperature control to ensure consistent and reliable hatches. Temperature is monitored on a purpose built liquid-in-glass thermometer and although factory set, the electronic temperature control allows fine tuning of the temperature setting if required.

The Mini Advance version provides automatic egg turning with autostop 2 days prior to hatching, countdown to date-of-hatch and temperature alarms on its digital display so you always know the status of your hatch. Eggs are turned by rotating egg disks. Two disks are available, one for 7 eggs of all sizes up to duck (supplied as standard) with a second small egg disk holding 12 eggs up to the size of pheasant available as an optional extra.

Humidity is provided for with central water reservoirs in both models and both operate at low voltage (from mains adapters supplied) for safety.

Great little incubator but does not auto turn!Review by Mark
This incubator worked great but does not include the auto turn feature. We just turned our eggs before work, during lunch, after work, and before bedtime and all our eggs hatched! (Posted on 5/1/2013)
