After much research I decided on the Brinsea Ovation 28 Advance for a number of reasons. It has plenty of capacity for my needs (small hobby hatcher), great accuracy, automatic turning and hygrometer function. I set two breeds of eggs which I ordered online and were posted to me. All 10 Araucana eggs are fertile and developing beautifully at day 10 but all 6 Wyandotte eggs were infertile. The seller sent me some replacement Wyandotte eggs so I now have two lots at different stages of incubation. This situation has made me to realise that the Ovation is going to be perfect for a staggered hatch as I’ll be able to lay the first eggs down for lockdown while still having the turning function on to turn the egg rack containing the second batch. This would not be possible with most other incubators that rock or rotate the whole incubator for example. I have made a cardboard divider that will slot in to separate the hatching chicks from the turning rack. (Brinsea, how about selling an accessory for this purpose?) I am so delighted I chose this incubator. Although expensive, it’s a worthwhile investment... If your eggs are gunna hatch, they’re gunna hatch in a Brinsea!

first incubator

Posted by adrian smith on 31/03/2017

i like this incubator but that said it is my first. what i am finding is it's difficult to keep the humidity lower than 60%! if the front tank is kept full the it's around 62%. room humidity is only 20%. i am having to add a little bit of water often to keep it within an acceptable range for duck eggs, it would be very difficult if it was chicken eggs, which i will find out in a couple of months if it is or not. it's almost like the front water trough could do with being smaller.

Easy to set up

I am so pleased with my purchase of the Ovation 28 Advance, incubator . well packaged , prompt delivery .Easy to set up . early days yet but I have used many incubators in my life most have been very large ones and I have a feel that this is going to be just the ticket for my small hobby needs at this time , .
