The latest technology in a familiar shape

Control system

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 below). NEW COOLING FEATURE!

The high quality incubator cabinet is entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes it durable and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss meaning 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 Advance’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 given in the specification table. Eggs are turned during incubation as the whole incubator is rocked from side to side – hence the octagonal cabinet ends. The Autoturn Cradle turns the eggs hourly but this can be done manually twice daily.


All Brinsea egg incubators are fully guaranteed and will be repaired or replaced if a fault should arise within the guarantee period (See terms of guarantee). Brinsea Products Ltd and their agents will not be responsible for loss of eggs in the event of failure, however caused, and the user is advised to arrange his own insurance cover where loss of power, mechanical or electrical failure might result in unacceptable losses.

Great ResultsReview by Betsy
I used this incubator for all of the spring season, and was very impressed with the great results that I got. First, it was very easy to set up and it maintained those settings well. I did not have to fill the water reserve very often, so I am glad I didn't spend the extra money on the EX version. I have been averaging about a 98% hatch rate of fertile eggs, way better than what I used to accomplish with my Hova-Bator. This is a great incubator, and you couldn't force me to go back!

awesome!Review by The Incubator
I love this incubator- it has great features and is really easy to use. I like that I can easily adjust it to fit different size eggs- saves on the cost and hassle of swapping out trays. Plus, I can incubate different kinds of eggs at the same time, which is good for me, since I have a variety of different birds. (Posted on 6/18/2013)
Perfect Incubator!Review by Sally B.
I had been using a homemade incubator for the past couple of years before I decided to splurge on this guy, and I couldn't be happier. I went from about a 75% hatch rate in my old incubator to 100% hatch rate on my first hatch in the Brinsea. I am very pleased with the quality and construction. (Posted on 4/11/2013)
