Brinsea Octagon 20 Eco Incubator

Great Value Incubator

The Octagon 20 Eco combines the high quality engineering of Brinsea with a low- ticket cost. By replacing digital controls with simple to use manual controls (it comes preset and ready to incubate chickens), they have made this incubator more accessible to hobby breeders or new breeders. With a 24 Chicken egg capacity, there is plenty of room here to get a new breeding project off to a great start! This listing does not include the autoturn cradle, but the unique octagon design of these incubators makes manual turning much easier than with most devices- all you have to do is rock the incubator on to the 3 flat surfaces on the bottom, changing position about once every 4 hours. With most incubators, you would need to manually turn every single egg by hand! So even with manually turning, it still provides significant time savings over other manual turning incubators. Of course, you can also add an auto-turn cradle at any time for greater ease of use.

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.

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.

Excellent Incubator!Review by Lisa R.
I must say, I am in love with this incubator! Saves me a lot of time hand turning. Rocking the whole machine is such an innovative approach, I love it! I like the adjustable trays, because you never know when you might find some "project" eggs that you don't want to buy a whole new set of trays for. All in all, this incubator is very simple to use and setup, and the cool design is an added bonus with increased functionality! (Posted on 10/5/2015)
Handy Little Incubator!Review by Rance S.
This incubator is very cool. The design makes it easy to hand turn eggs, and I feel confident that my eggs are secure in this incubator. I like that it was just ready to go right out of the box, and setup was very easy and quick. It seems like the turning method is a very revolutionary idea, I would recommend it to others highly.
