Brinsea are known to be innovators with regards to their incubators and to celebrate their 40th anniversary they have released a new range of incubators with all the latest technology. The Ovation 56 Eco is a fully automatic incubator in which the airflow is second to none.
The eggs are automatically turned in the Ovation 56 Eco. They sit in carriers that in turn sit in slots on either side of the incubator. The motor then turns the slots causing the egg carriers to rock back and forth throughout the day. The Ovation 56 Eco comes with 8 of these carriers which can hold around 7 chicken or duck eggs and around 12 quail eggs. If you are wanting to either incubate goose eggs or increase the capacity for the quail eggs to 110, you can purchase a separate set of 5 large egg carriers. With these, you can incubate 3 goose eggs in a carrier meaning you can incubate 15 in total.
The egg turning is controlled via the digital display and can be set to turn at various intervals throughout the day.
Made with tough double insulated plastics, the Ovation 56 Eco has an extremely accurate control over its temperature. The reason for this is that it contains Brinsea’s highly accurate electronic temperature control system which is accurate to 0.1 of a degree. This works in the same way as a thermostat and clicks on and off regulating the temperature inside the incubator.
Coupled with this is the new airflow design. The way in which the inner plastics are shaped pushes the air around the outside of the incubator which then causes it to be pushed underneath the eggs and up past them, this ensures that there are no cold spots in the incubator. Temperature is also controlled via the digital display and can be set to what the user wants although it comes pre-set at 37.5 degrees. You can also view the temperature in either Celsius or Fahrenheit depending on preference.
To control the humidity, the user needs to add water into the incubator manually. To do this, you simply lift the lid and pour water down the side, this then finds its way into the water troughs in the base without disturbing the eggs. It is worth pointing out that one of the main causes of chicks not hatching is that the humidity levels are too high for them, so less is better than more when putting water in your incubator!
One of the newest features to Brinsea’s incubators is that of the temperature alarms. This incubator has both internal and external alarms. The internal alarms let the user know when the temperature is too hot or too cold within the incubator and the external alarms do the same but with the room temperature. This warning gives the eggs the best chance of hatching.
Another advantage of the Brinsea incubators is that the plastics are infused with Anti-Microbial properties. What this means is that when bacteria lands on the plastics, it cannot reproduce and breed and therefore dies on the plastics rather than causing problems to the eggs.
It also comes with a 3 year warranty which requires you to register the product on Brinsea’s website
