Start Hatching a Bright Idea!

Starter Pack 1 provides the ideal equipment necessary to get you started in small scale egg incubation and rearing. It's easy to use and great fun! The Starter Pack 1 includes:

  • Mini II Eco Incubator - this is a fan assisted manual turn egg incubator holding up to 10 hens eggs or equivalent. The combination of proven electronic temperature control, fan assistance, carefully directed airflow and a specially made glass thermometer result in a machine which is deceptively sophisticated yet extremely easy to use. The high quality clear top allows you to see every second of an egg hatching from every angle. The Mini ECO is covered by Brinsea's free 3 year guarantee (just follow the user instructions to register online).
  • Comes supplied with one corrugated hatching mat, additional mats may be purchased for future hatches. Use with the corrugated side face up to give better grip for chicks to reduce the potential incidence of splayed legs. To be disposed of after each hatch. Ideal for composting following use.
  • OvaView candling lamp - a very effective low cost all purpose candling lamp ideal for identifying infertile eggs with pale, plain shells (most species of hen, duck or goose etc.) The OvaView is battery powered for convenience and uses high output, high efficiency LED illumination - so no bulbs to replace or concerns about overheating the eggs during inspection. See your chicks develop inside the egg!
  • EcoGlow 600 Safety Chick Brooder - The EcoGlow Safety 600 chick brooder is ideal for keeping newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl warm. The EcoGlow has easily adjustable height settings for different sized chicks and its tough plastic construction makes it durable and easy to clean. It is designed to meet the stringent IPX7 electrical safety standard. The EcoGlow runs from a 12v power source for complete peace of mind and uses just 18 Watts of power to keep up to twenty chicks warm.
  • A feeder - holds 1.5kg of food. Perfect for holding wheat, layers pellets, chick crumbs etc.
  • A drinker - 1.5 litre - suitable for game, poultry and waterfowl chicks. Durable and easy to clean.

Starter Pack 1 comes with full instructions, and is extremely simple to use.

Easy to Use, Ideal for Beginners

Posted by Sharon Reeves on 05/03/2021

After I accidentally bent the base of my first Brinsea incubator in the dishwasher, which I'd happily and successfully used for many years for quail eggs, then had bad experiences with a couple of obscure brands of incubator, I decided to go back to the brand I like and trust the most, when we decided to raise ducks for a GCSE science project during the first lockdown. The starter pack contained an impressive set of equipment for the price. The incubator, with adjustable thermostatic temperature control, manual humidity control that was easy to understand and use successfully, did its job perfectly. Along with the ducks eggs, I put in some quail eggs, so they could be my quality control for the incubator, given my decades of experience with them. I chose a temperature that suited both ducks and quails (top of the provided range for ducks and bottom of the optimum range for quails) and all 7/7 quail eggs hatched, on time and within hours of each other, and 3/3 of the fertile duck eggs hatched on time and within hours of each other. I made one change to the instructions regarding humidity for the duck eggs, once I had raised it for the last two days of the quails incubation I left it high for the remainder of the duck eggs incubation period, in accordance with advice I'd found online from a duck farmer which appeared logical to me. It was the first time I had used a proper candler, which came with the kit, it was brilliant for the duck eggs. It was reassuring and exciting to be able to tell which eggs were fertile and see the development and movement so clearly from day 7 onward. I couldn't use it for the quails, because their shells were thicker and darker so nothing was visible. The brooder that came in the kit worked well for the quails and the ducks, more reliable than the heat bulb I'd used previously and less of a worry re. injury if they got too close. The feeder and waterer that came in the kit were not suitable for ducklings but with precautions ie. marbles, were fine for Japanese quail chicks NB. they would be too big for Chinese quails but fine for other bigger varieties of chicks. Overall the starter kit was good value for money and reliable at its job, the instructions were clear and it was easy to use and clean afterward. As a decades long user of Brinsea products (the first I had was the classroom pack about 30 years ago) I would still recommend them above all others :)
