The Mini II Eco Incubator is an excellent product except for one thing: In the manual as well as on the box it says there's room for 10 chicken eggs. But I could only put in ten of an average size. So I had to disappoint one.
I have had this incubator for about 8 months now and I am perfectly satisfied. Quail hatch rate is about 90%. It keeps the temperature perfectly level and there are no issues with humidity either.
Wow these products and company is amazing. This incubator is so easy to use keeps it's temperature spot on. Easy to assemble. Used it for the first time I put in six quail eggs and hatched five beautiful chicks. I knew I would only get five as on day 11 I candle the eggs and noticed one wasn't fertile. So I had 100% hatch rate. They hatched on different days and was worried when to take them out of the incubator. So I rang customer support and spoke to a lovely friendly lady who explained things to me. Perfect all the way I now have five healthy chicks xx
I got two of these as present a couple of years ago, They really helped me start up and learn the process. Great product for beginners. I now use the 380 egg incubators, but am glad I started with this product as I learned all the important basics with it.
I bought one of these for my home educated children. It was the best incubator we could of bought for a starter machine, very easy to use. We hatched chicken eggs and then quail eggs. We had a very successful hatch. They took full responsibility of the eggs. We had a wonderful experience watching the eggs hatch. The eggs were in plain view so we could see every stage of them hatching and then the chicks drying. How on earth they fit in the eggs is amazing. I would recommend this incubator to anyone. The staff at Brinsea were also very helpful and supportive, they sent us pics of all the stages of candling and what the chicks would look like in the egg.
I've hatched two batches of pekin bantams and had 100% success. Easy to use (I bought the semi automatic kit), easy to clean afterwards. Great visibility. 100% would recommend.
I had wanted to hatch some chicks for some time so did my research online. Basically, all the experienced people on social media told me: get a Brinsea. And I haven't regretted it. The instructions for set up were simple - we followed them to the letter and hatched six healthy chicks first go. In fact, all the viable eggs hatched, even though they were mail order and had been through the post! It was easy to keep the humidity right with the external top-up point so I didn't have to open the lid too often in hot weather. I deliberately chose the manual version, both because it was very reasonable. and because it meant my kids could get hands-on turning the eggs, making the experience even more enthralling for them. The unit was quiet - just a gentle hum so we had it in a study room where it was easy to get to. All in all, this was a brilliant, reliable bit of kit that contributed to that rarest of things, a project the whole family worked together on and found fascinating and exciting.
A Super incubator, hatched all eggs first time easy to use.
I will never get over the joy of putting eggs in my Brinsea and three weeks later, tap tap tap, cheep cheep cheep, new life. It's a brilliant, easy to use and compact machine which just does the job and then out into the big wide world and a Brinsea brooder until they're ready to grow on.
We are delighted with our mini incubator. Very easy to operate. With our first batch of hens eggs we managed to hatch 4 out of 6. Wonderful to watch.
i find this to be a great item , as i have only a small garden and small flock of chickens and ducks , i can remove eggs and place them in the incubator so to stop the girls going broody and keep them laying more eggs .philip
After years of using a broody hen I decided to invest in my first incubator, the mini II echo has been brilliant. It's simple to set up and use would definitely recommend to anyone starting out
Numerous attempts with another incubator resulted in a single success and temperatures were obviously not stable or uniform. This little thing is rock solid. The first time and straight out of the box with this and two out of three fertile eggs hatched. Gets very crowded in there if fully loaded with eggs so I had to move the chics out within 24hours. Hand turning three times a day isn’t so bad using a couple of pencil marks at 10 and 2 as in the videos. I cut out a mat from the base of a mushroom crates (a plastic lattice) to stop the eggs rolling around. Can’t wait until new season hatching eggs become available
I can't speak and write English very good so I will try as best as I can. The incubator has a good end result, but I used it just once.I started with 11 very small chicken eggs (less then 10 normal chicken eggs) but that's a little bit too much for the incubator. Not for the 21 days of brooding but during the time the chickens came out. Two of the eleven eggs where not fertilized, so that was 'a benifit' in this situation.An other point, you have to turn the eggs manual, that'a not a problem for me, but I read you do not have to open the incubator because the chicken could die. Well, I can not turn the eggs without open the incubator.And third, the level of water is too wet when you fill the first part as in description! I used three hygrometers but the humidity will raise over 80%!! I red a tip to cover the little water tank till you find the good humidity. that was a good solution, and at the end of the period I had 8 very cute chickens!
Great incubator, especially if you can be there to turn eggs, and monitor them consistently, exceptional temperature regulation
I have used this product this year for the first time. Have had 60% sucess rate.
I purchased this for children to use with ducks, quail and geese, and it has served them brilliantly time after time. We are now over-run with poultry!
Being my first incubator, I was a bit taken aback upon realising that the fan would be on 24/7 (I thought when it got up to temperature it may have switched off only coming back on when necessary) but now, not surprised really and it wasn't a problem. I think even two chicks is plenty in this, falling about and lurching forward; wouldn't want any more than 4 hatchlings in it for longer than 12 hours. I would worry about chicks hurting themselves on the thermometer which does get in the way. From the successful hatch, it's apparent that there was enough humidity just from adding water to the reservoirs as ordered - however, the incubator was in a cool and ventilated area. Thought the postage to NI was quite a lot.
