Brinsea incubators and brooders are sold around the world for parrot breeding

With typically a small number of valuable eggs parrot breeders value an incubator that combines sophistication and small scale.

Parrot breeders have known that the main compromise when using an incubator designed for hens’ eggs is that the turning isn’t sophisticated enough. Some parrots turn their eggs almost continually during incubation and so to replicate this Brinsea have developed the Ovation Zoologica incubators which turn the eggs on rollers with digital controlled precision. The spacing between these alloy rollers can be adjusted to suit different egg sizes. The Zoologica incubators feature Brinsea’s pinpoint control of temperature and humidity along with alarms to warn of power failure or wild room temperature changes to ensure the best possible hatching results for your exotic eggs. The temperature control is further improved with the filled, insulated base. The Ovation 28 Zoologica holds at least 20 African Grey sized eggs and the 56 holds double that number so there’s a model to suit most applications. Like all Brinsea incubators, these new models are made in UK and come with a FREE 3 year guarantee, subject to simple online registration.

 

Brinsea’s new Zoologica Specialist Exotic Egg Incubator – available in two sizes.

‘These new exotic egg incubators represent class-leading technology with the finest incubation management available and are more advanced and refined than some well-regarded incubators costing over twice the price. The inclusion of precision roller turning, as featured in Brinsea’s £4500 Contaq Z7 incubator, completes this impressive design.’ said Ian Pearce, Brinsea’s Managing Director.

Another popular model for parrots is the Maxi II EX which features fully automatic humidity control, programmable turning which can be adjusted down to just  five minute turning intervals – which is important for some parrot species –  this model also comes complete with two egg disks to accommodate a wide range of egg sizes.

Parrot chicks hatch blind and helpless when they hatch and it is some weeks before they are able to move around, control their body temperature and feed themselves. They need a hygienic and temperature controlled environment to thrive and the Brinsea TLC-40 Advance Brooder and TLC-50 Advance Brooder are both ideally suited to this. As they grow and develop down and feathers they can gradually tolerate lower temperatures and the breeder needs to be able to reduce the chamber temperature easily, whilst still maintaining control. Young birds also benefit from being able to see humans from within the chamber; during this early stage in their development it is essential for young birds to become familiar with the presence of people if they are to be tame in adulthood.

 

Brinsea’s Maxi II EX and the TLC-40 and TLC-50 brooders are popular with parrot breeders.
