The Brinsea Mini II Advance is a fantastic incubator that takes all of the uncertainty out of incubation. With the incubator being digital, it has lots of benefits over similair incubators.
It is also a perfect incubator for those who are experiencing the joy of hatching for the first time as it is automated and it has a large viewing window so that you can see all of the eggs at all times.
The eggs are automatically turned in the Mini II Advance, you can also adjust the egg turning angle and egg turning interval. The Mini II Advance comes with a 7 egg tray which allows you to incubate 7 eggs but you can also purchase an optional small 12 egg tray which will increase the capacity to 12 eggs for smaller species.
The incubator also comes with a countdown feature which will automatically stop the egg turning 3 days before your eggs are due to hatch, simply set the number of days that it takes for the eggs you are incubating to hatch and the incubator will do the rest!
The temperature is controlled digitally on the Brinsea Mini II Advance. The user has very accurate control over the temperature and can set it to 0.1 of a degree depending on what species of egg they are incubating.
The incubator comes factory set at 37.5 Degrees as recommended.
Humidity is controlled manually in the Brinsea Mini II Advance. The way in which you control it is by filling up the external water trough which runs the water into the middle section of the incubator, this means that you don’t have to lift the lid which keeps the humidity at a more constant level.
The Brinsea Mini II Advance has a few extra features up its sleeve that aid the user. The first of these is that it features Brinsea’s unique cooling feature, this feature allows the user to set an amount of time every day that the incubator will switch off the heating and sit at ambient temperature. The thinking behind this is that in the wild, Hens will get off the eggs to have a feed and drink. It is worth bearing in mind that this feature should only be used from day 7 to when the egg turning is switched off for the cooling to have a positive effect.
Another advantage of this incubator is that it is made with antimicrobial plastics, the benefits of using plastics that have built in antimicrobial additives is that it reduces the risk of a build-up of bacteria which should allow the user to see a greater hatch rate over the life of the incubator.
A brand new feature to the advance range of Brinsea’s incubators is that they contain both an alarm for when the temperature inside the incubators gets either too high or too low and also an external temperature alarm which alerts the user if the room temperature that the incubator is in is either too warm or too cold.
It also comes with a 3 year warranty which requires you to register the product on Brinsea's website.
