The newest edition to Brinsea’s range of incubators is the Maxi II EX. This small incubator comes with two egg trays to allow for maximum capacity on the species that you are incubating. It also has complete temperature and humidity control meaning that the user has complete control over the incubation conditions.
The egg turning in this incubator is fully automatic as the eggs sit in holes on a tray which is turned by the machine. The incubator comes with both the standard egg tray and the small egg tray which means that you can maximise the capacity inside the incubator regardless of what species you choose to incubate. The standard egg tray can hold 14 chicken or duck eggs and the smaller tray can hold 40 pheasant or quail eggs. It is worth noting that you should always have the pointy end of the egg pointing towards the middle of the incubator for best results.
You can adjust how often the incubator turns the eggs and how long each turn lasts for via the simple digital display.
Using Brinsea’s highly accurate electronic temperature control, the perfect conditions can be achieved inside this incubator. As the incubator is accurate to 0.1 degrees Celsius and is easily adjustable through the digital display you can ensure that your eggs are kept at the precise temperature you require.
You can view the temperature in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.
One of the main advantages of this incubator is that is has a built-in humidity pump. The beauty of this feature is that the incubator can control the humidity levels that the user sets. It is a very simple design but very effective. As the pump rotates, it creates suction which pulls water through the silicon tube which then drips onto a piece of humidity pad. Due to the temperature inside the incubator, this water evaporates creating the humidity. Once the right level has been achieved, the pump will switch on and off as required like a thermostat.
As well as the excellent features listed above, this incubator has a few more tricks up its sleeve! The first one is that due to the plastics that it has been made with, you have a full 360-degree view of the eggs meaning that there are no blind spots inside the incubator.
Another advantage of the plastics is that they are made with an Anti-Microbial coating. What this coating does is provide an environment where bacteria cannot survive meaning a safer environment for the eggs you are incubating.
This incubator also has a couple of temperature alarms. The first lets you know if the internal temperature of the incubator has gone either too high or too low. The second is a new feature that alerts the user when the room temperature that the incubator is in gets either too hot or too cold, this is to make sure that the incubator is in the optimum conditions to hatch eggs out.
The final feature of this incubator is that it has a cooling option built-in. This feature is designed to mimic that of the nest in nature, as the hen sitting on the eggs will get on and off the eggs to feed and drink. You can set how long each day the incubator will stop heating the eggs. IT is worth pointing out that this feature should only be enabled from 7 days into incubation until the day the eggs stop turning.
It also comes with a 3 year warranty which requires you to register the product on Brinsea’s website
