Brinsea Octagon 20 Eco Incubator with Autoturn Cradle

Great Value With Automatic Turning

Brinsea has worked hard to bring their high quality engineered incubators to the general public. Everyone deserves to have a high quality incubator at a reasonable price, and the Octagon 20 Eco Incubator with Autoturn cradle is the ideal solution. 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. Not only is this incubator easy to use and provides high hatch rates, it also comes with an automatic turn cradle to help save you time. Although manaul turning is much easier with the Octagon line than with other incubator brands, you still have to be there in order to turn it. With the autoturn cradle, you can feel less like a mother hen constantly tending to her eggs. With a 24 Chicken egg capacity, there is plenty of room here to get a new breeding project off to a great start!

The Octagon Egg Incubator Range -
the latest technology in a familiar shape

The Octagon 20 Eco Incubator is a simple but high quality egg incubator using the same tough and insulated 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. There is no facility for humidity measurement control. This is an incubator for the cost-conscious and those who require simplicity over features.


  • Egg capacity of 24 chicken eggs or equivalent
  • Simple and accurate proportional band electronic temperature control
  • Temperature factory preset at 99.5 F with easy tamper-proof adjustment
  • Flashing temperature indicator and conventional but accurate liquid in glass thermometer
  • Fan assisted air circulation 
  • Good visibility of the eggs
  • Tough and hygienic cabinet
  • Insulated for low energy use and optimal temperature distribution


Control system

The Octagon 20 Eco controls temperature with high accuracy using a proven proportional band electronic controller with easy tamper-proof adjustment. A flashing indicator shows that the incubation temperature is being controlled steadily and temperature is monitored with a purpose made liquid in glass thermometer.


The high quality egg 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 as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated and a capacity guide for a range of popular species 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. This can be done manually at least twice each day or turning is performed automatically if the incubator is used with the optional Autoturn Cradle which turns the eggs hourly.


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.

Thank God For AutoTurn! Review by medina37
I was going to by this unit without the autoturn cradle so I could save some money, but I am so glad I got this one instead! I like the range of motion that this one offers, and it's way easier than turning the eggs by hand. (Posted on 3/9/2013)
