Additional Information:


The high quality incubator cabinets are entirely injection molded from high grade ABS which makes them durable and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss meaning lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The incubator tops are clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks inside. 

Humidity and ventilation 

Air is circulated by long life computer fans which, coupled with the unique grilles with optimized air diffusers, means extremely even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in reservoirs in the base (unless the EX pump is used – Advance models only). 

Egg Handling 

Egg turning is achieved by rocking the whole cabinet from side to side either by hand (hence the Octagon® shape) or with the automatic turning cradle which moves the incubator through 90° approximately once each hour. External egg turning keeps the incubator interior free from motors and mechanisms which make cleaning easier. Auto-turn cradles are supplied as standard with all Octagon® 40 models. To accommodate eggs of different sizes the two removable egg trays are supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and maximize the number that can be held. Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated easily as the Octagon® 40s hold up to 48 hen eggs or equivalent.

Periodic Cooling 

Cooling is an entirely natural process as most birds will get off the nest at least once a day and leave the eggs unheated for a significant time. Recent research has also shown that hatch rates can actually increase significantly as a result of cooling. For this reason Brinsea® has now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for 2012. This feature turns the incubator’s heater and low temperature alarm off for a selected period but keeps the fan running. After the cooling period is complete the incubator reverts to normal temperature and the alarm is automatically reset.
