Brinsea's NEW Maxi 24 Advance is a very popular model offering great value and convenience. Perfect for those new to egg incubation, the Maxi 24 Advance provides the convenience of automatic turning with the reassurance of digital alarms and count-down to hatch day. With great visibility of the hatching eggs and the convenience of external water top-up and the latest technical innovations from Brinsea it takes the guesswork out of incubation.

This incubator features all of Brinsea’ s technology, new and old, and gives you the best chance of hatching your eggs.

  • Automatic egg turning

Maxi 24 Advance incubator now holds 24 hens' eggs, thanks to Brinsea's new, innovative system of egg disk quadrants. These quadrants simply clip together to allow eggs of one size to be incubated or eggs of different sizes to be incubated together when using different species specific quadrants. Comes supplied with hen and duck quadrants as standard.

The Maxi 24 Advance turns the eggs automatically and provides digital control of temperature, including alarms to warn of power failure, incubation temperature fluctuations, periodic cooling option and Brinsea’s new patented room temperature alarm.


Don’t know what incubator is right for you? Too many models to choose from and don’t know the difference between them. See our comparison below between the three different Maxi II incubators.

Please note: If you want to incubate Chinese Painted Quail eggs, or very small quail eggs we recommend you use the Brinsea Maxi Advance Small 40 Egg Tray rather than the Quail egg quadrants.

Questions & Answers

What’s the difference between the Brinsea Maxi II Eco, Advance and EX incubators?

The Maxi II Eco is the most basic machine, it uses a liquid in glass thermometer for the temperature reading (there is no humidity display) and egg-turning needs to be performed by hand. You need to turn the eggs 3-4 times a day. Whereas the Maxi II Advance and EX versions have a digital display for the temperature and humidity, as well as automatic egg turning.

In addition to the Maxi II Advance features, the Maxi II EX has automatic humidity control which draws water into the incubator automatically as its needed, accurately maintaining the humidity at the desired level.

What’s the difference between Maxi II and Mini II incubators?

The only difference between the two machines is the size and egg capacity. The Maxi II is the larger machine and holds up to 14 hen sized eggs or equivalent whereas the Mini II holds up to 7 hen sized eggs or equivalent.

The Eco, Advance and EX versions of the Maxi II match the specifications of the Eco, Advance and EX versions of the Mini II. The only difference is the egg capacity.

What egg trays do I get with the Maxi 24 Advance?

Supplied with the Brinsea Maxi 24 Advance is 2 sets of egg quadrants.

A set to take 24 hens’ eggs and a set for 12 duck eggs.  

If you wish to hatch quail or goose eggs you will need to purchase the additional sets of egg quadrants separately which are product codes 1628 for the set of quail quadrants and 1630 for the set of goose quadrants.
