Features

The Brinsea Maxi II Eco is a semi-auto turn incubator fresh off the production line! To celebrate Brinsea being 40 years old, they have released a new line of incubators starting with this one. It can hold up to 14 chicken eggs, it has fantastic airflow and is great for those who like to be involved with the incubation process. 

The temperature in this incubator is controlled by Brinsea’s extremely accurate electronic temperature control and can be manually adjusted using the turning screw on the top of the incubator. The correct incubation temperature of 37.5 degrees is what the incubator comes set as. You can measure the temperature by looking at the provided Liquid In Glass Thermometer.

 Main Features

  • Temperature measured by a Liquid In Glass Thermometer (included)
  • Manual Humidity control 
  • Manual egg turning
  • Fan assisted airflow
  • Protected by Biomaster Antimicrobial additive
  • Ventilation control
  • External water top-up
  • Incubator capacity 14 hen eggs & 40 quail eggs based on ‘standard sized’ eggs. Two egg trays supplied as part of the semi-auto turning upgrade kit

To increase the humidity above natural levels, you can add water into the incubator via the external top up point which is on the side of the incubator. Once water is poured into here, it travels into the central reservoir and evaporates increasing the humidity levels.

The semi-auto version comes with a hand turning mechanism accessory. Easy to fit and simple to use. The turning mechanism engages with the cogs on the egg disk allowing a simple turn to be made without having to lift the lid off the incubator to manually turn the eggs. The eggs in this incubator need to be turned by hand at least 3 times a day. They also need to be turned opposite ways each time starting with clockwise and then anti-clockwise and so on. It is recommended to put a cross on one side and a circle on the other so you know that all eggs have been turned.

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’s the difference between manual, semi-automatic and automatic turning incubators?

In a ‘manual’ incubator, eggs must be turned ‘manually’, meaning you must turn each egg by hand usually around 3-4 times a day.

Automatic incubators will automatically turn the eggs for you. On some automatic machines, you can set the timings of the turns, as well as the duration or angle of the turn. This can be important if you’re incubating specialist birds such as falcons or exotic birds.

Semi-automatic incubators don’t require you to turn each egg by hand, but equally there is no motor to turn them for you either. So, normally semi-automatic machines have a handle or lever that you push and pull to roll or rock all the eggs at the same time. Or, some incubators have specially shaped bases that allow you to tilt the entire machine back and forth.

Please note that ‘manual’ and ‘automatic’, when used in the item name, only refers to the egg turning type. It does not relate to the humidity control or to any other feature.
