 Brinsea egg incubator control system

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!

Brinsea egg incubator cabinet


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.

egg incubation humidity and ventilation


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.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic Incubator! Review by AlphaBetty
Love this incubator! Very easy to setup and use, great results! I highly recommend it! (Posted on 8/4/2015)
Excellent Investment Review by Pete Vrataric
Although a little pricier than some of the other models I was considering, this one won me over on features and design. The warranty was also longer than the other models I reviewed. This is very easy to set up and monitor, and I not only feel confident that my eggs are in the best possible place, but results have proven it to be the case! I have already used this incubator for 3 separate hatches this past spring, incubating button quail eggs. My first hatch I only lost one egg, and the second and third I had 100% hatch rates. I have been very pleased with these results, and have found that my profitability has greatly increased by investing in a more reliable incubator. This incubator has exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend it to other breeders who are looking for a machine that performs properly every time. (Posted on 7/20/2015)
