EXtra FANTASTIC EXtra fascinating

This incubator is Fabulous. Everything about it is so simple and yet it makes perfect sense, not only that it does the job of incubating your eggs with the absolute minimum of input from you.Almost set and forget, although I know we all like to keep an eye on whats happening, and you can, from the clear top you can see the eggs, the digital readout of humidity and temperature,and the fascinating little water pump keeping the humidity going. In fact this is the only area you need to do anything, just make sure your supply of water is kept up. And at the end of your hatch,HOW EASY is this incubator to clean, WOW this is the nasty end of the excersise usually, but with this one piece plastic base it is so easy to wash out. I LOVE IT. Congrats Brinsea Just Brilliant.

Creating New Life

Posted by Graham on 30/06/2018

18 years ago my Beautiful Wife and I took a Coach trip from Sevenoaks Market to Paris, to visit a HUGE agricultural show, there was every thing from hair grips to huge machines and everything in between, including foods and wines and animals and birds of all shapes and sizes, It was then that I laid eyes on my first Brinsea incubators, and saw the quality of the build especially the Cabinets that held something like 600 eggs, my wife, having calmed me down some what, promised that when we move to France you can get one, so here we are 18 years on and I am the proud owner of the 'Ovation 56 EX Incubator' and being new to this incredible method of creating new life, I was absolutely gobsmacked when I went into the shed one morning and saw all these little faces peering up at me with others in the throws of breaking out of there little egg shell wombs all because the 'Ovation 56 EX Incubator' did exactly what it says on the box. And because of that I am now a proud surrogate Father to 16 Jersey Giant Chicks, if only human life was as easy. Thank You Brinsea. Daddy G.

Accurate and easy to clean

I use this one as a hatcher to my OvaEasy Advance 100 EX. The EX-control system for the humidity is very important! If you have problem with the humidity - make sure you use the right size of humidity sponge. Easy to learn and easy to handle. Accurate and trustworthy.

Fantastic Incubator

Very pleased with my incubator, very easy to use and the humidity control is extremely useful. 100% worth buying it.

Ok not as good as I expected from brinsea

Posted by Andrew Rogers on 18/02/2018

1st when my ex incubator arrived had wrong facia on (advance facia not ex. Brinsea have sent out right facia). Bought large egg trays as hatching quail. They aren't designed for cotournix eggs and you can't fit two rows of standard size coturnix quail eggs in. The first 14 days worked perfectly kept temperature and humidity correct. At lock down tried to increase humidity to 60% it struggled without leaving a puddle on incubator floor. Reading the description incubator floor was designed with grip to help prevent splayed legs, it isn't more than 40% of my hatch have splayed legs. I would advise anyone using these to use shelf liner to help prevent this. All in all ok but I'm my mind with the faults not worth the price tag. Wish I'd of just pails a little bit more for one of the cabinet units. Disappointed 1st experience of brinsea products.

Perfect for everyone.
