Ovation incubator

Posted by Helen Dixon on 07/03/2019

Bought the Ovation Eco a couple of years ago after my dear old Octagon 20 finally gave up. I've enjoyed several successful hatches of duck and hen eggs. The bator is easy to set up, is very stable and has has excellent visibility. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that I needed to take the lid apart to be able to clean it sufficiently. I found this to be quite fiddly and time consuming but it is the only negative point.

Works a dream

I really wanted a Ovation 28 Eco Incubator for ages. I finally decided to purchase one. Love the Incubator. Had to use You Tube to set it up and it was very helpful and clear instructions. Found it easy to use. Love that I can see through the clear cover as I eagerly await the eggs to hatch.

Great inci

I was given this incubator for my Christmas and it is a gift that has given me great pleasure ever since. I have had reliable hatching of ducklings and chickens. I found the settings easy to change and the motor is really steady. It is easy to clean. I did have issues with the fan not running properly and Brinsea sent a replacement first class post. It was very easy to replace and has worked perfectly since.

Good Quality Product that does its job

I have had this incubator for 18 months now and I have successfully hatched many chicken, guinea fowl and duck eggs with ease. Sometimes I would like to know the humidity and I wish I would have spent the extra money for the Advanced model. Overall, the product is easy to use and to setup. My only complaint would be with the iron screws that are beginning to rust, it would be nice if they used stainless steel instead. Also, it is a hassle to remove all the screws in order to clean it properly. I am always concerned that I will strip the screw heads or over-tighten the screws and crack the plastic housing. The system works though, and I highly recommend this easy and affordable product.

You get what you pay for

Like I am sure many people who are to having chickens and hatching eggs. I made my first mistake by buying a cheap incubator on an auction site. It held 96 eggs which cost me quite a lot. After 18 days it turned off and I lost the lot. I invested in the Ovation 28 Eco Incubator put in 28 eggs and hatched the lot. I was so happy as I had put in extra eggs. It is easy to clean and sturdy. I could have bought this the first and saved all the upset of loosing so many chicks. This incubator is great.

Easy to clean

Already have one Brinsea incubator, bought this as the only option locally when my second incubator failed just before I put the eggs in. Having had poor hatches with the other Brinsea I put 3 incubator thermometers in this one and had to up the temperature on the Binsea to 85.4 to get the required temperature on the other thermometers. I did get 8 out of 24 hatched which was OK. 3 from 12 in the other incubator but that was due to clear eggs. The new incubator turns the eggs OK, humidity is not too difficult to keep at the required level manually and it is easy to clean.
