As a celebration of Brinsea’s 40th anniversary, they have designed a new range of incubators which includes the Maxi II Advance Automatic 14 Egg Incubator. This incubator automatically turns the eggs and is fully digital meaning that the user can set the incubator up and simply walk away safe in the knowledge that their eggs are in the best environment.
This incubator features all of Brinsea’ s technology, new and old, and gives you the best chance of hatching your eggs.
Controllable through the digital display, the temperature is extremely accurate to 0.1 of a degree and can be adjusted by 0.1 of a degree too. The incubator comes factory set at 37.5 degrees which is the correct temperature for poultry. As this incubator is fan assisted, the air is blown around the incubator eliminating cold spots whilst maintaining a nice even temperature throughout the incubation period.
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.

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.
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.
|Lovely incubator, easy to use and clean. The hatching mat is a great idea. Like all incubators, it seems too small once the chicks hatch. Definitely recommended.|
|We bought the Brinsea Maxi II Advance Incubator (Automatic) as a replacement for an incubator which was fully automatic for humidity as well as temp and egg turning. We were worried that the humidity regulator would not be up to scratch but we have never had such good success. We've had 2 hatchings and all fertilised eggs have hatched and we are thrilled. This is a great machine. Many thanks.|
