Features

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 similar 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.

Main Features

  • Digital temperature display range of 20.0-40.0°C (68.0-104.0°F)
  • Temperature display of °C or °F
  • Manual Humidity control 
  • Automatic egg turning
  • Fan assisted airflow
  • Adjustable turning interval and angle
  • Protected by Biomaster Antimicrobial additive
  • Optional egg cooling feature
  • Ventilation control
  • External water top-up
  • Incubator and room temperature alarm
  • Power fail indicator
  • Incubator capacity 7 hen eggs & 12 quail eggs based on ‘standard sized’ eggs (Standard hen tray included, small quail tray available to purchase separately)

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.

Questions & Answers

Whatís the difference between the Brinsea Mini II Eco, Advance and EX incubators?

The Mini 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 Mini II Advance and EX versions have a digital display for the temperature and humidity, as well as automatic egg turning.

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

Whatís 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.

Whatís 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.

 

Whatís the difference between the Rcom 10 Pro and Mini II Advance?

The Rcom 10 Pro can hold up to 10 hen eggs or 30 quail eggs using the included multi-species egg tray. The Brinsea Mini II can only hold 7 hen eggs and 12 quail eggs but you’ll need to buy an additional ‘small egg tray’ in order to incubate quail eggs.

Both machines have automatic egg turning, a digital temperature display and both require the humidity to be controlled manually. However, the Rcom 10 Pro has an additional humidity display and the option to upgrade to automatic humidity control by purchasing a humidity pump. The Mini II Advance does not have a humidity display and it cannot be upgraded after purchase.

Finally, the Rcom 10 Pro also has built-in incubation pre-sets with a ‘species selector’ for fast set-up.

Customer Reviews

Saleem
It was my first time breeding my Greys and using an incubator- so simply with this incubator. Set up the control within a few minutes and simply add water to the reservoir. Simple, no hassle, and not overly noisy.
Lucy
Very easy to set up and use.
Dena Proctor
Excellent. Easy to use. Very good results.
Jack
Very good incubator and easy to use. I had a 100% hatch on my first attempt.
Infrequent reviewer
Used this to hatch call ducks. Easy to set up and nothing to do except top up the water level every couple of days. Worked fine and 3 out of the 4 eggs hatched.
Susanna Lydford
Brilliant incubator! This is our first time trying to incubate eggs and it has been really straight forward to do with this incubator. Our first ducking has just hatched, v happy.
Jafar
Got the mini II advance about 2 weeks ago.the delivery was very quick and received the product in good condition. Currently incubating some chicken eggs. Hope to get a good outcome.
Clive Witley
Three eggs in - 3 ducks out. Very easy to use with very little input required other than filling up water. Highly recommended for duck eggs
Kd Bergen
This is perfect for first time hatchers. Can have it up and running in minutes. Have had mine for 7 years and still hatching eggs.
Ali K
After two failed attempts with an alternative (cheaper) incubator bought from else where, we decided to upgrade to one of these. Out of 7 silkie eggs, 6 proved to be fertile and all 6 hatched! This incubator was so much easier to use, the temperature remained consistent and Iíve now got two very happy children who are besotted with our new additions! Would highly recommend
Claire Gann
I'm so pleased with this incubator, Excellent company to deal with, was emailed precise time for delivery and it happened to the minute. Easy to use, good viewing of eggs being moved, clear temp reading only need to top up water without removing dome. Encouraged by all the positive hatching results being reviewed, v happy so far.
Stephanie McAlpine
Prompt delivery, good communication from The Incubator Shop, easy to set up (even for me being a luddite!) and seems to be working so far!
Mrs Malvina Todd
Perfect for what I wanted. Delivered on time just waiting for the part that was missing which I have been promised.
Sue
This is my second Mini first one is 10 years old and still going strong.Ordering was simple and acurate Great service
Fred
Fast delivery, good price and a great little incubator
Philip Colley
Excellent incubator. Wish I'd paid the extra and bought this at the beginning my incubating adventure, rather than opting for the cheap Chinese rubbish that eventually blew up, and which gave only occasional success.
Pip
Very happy with this incubator. Easy to use, eggs are doing well and the clear viewing cover is great for the children.
Maatje Lobbezoo
Quick delivery, brilliant incubator. It's my first time so I'm very pleased it's doing all the work for me. Highly recommend!
Catherine Hill
Very quick delivery. Easy instructions,quick set up,no fuss, brilliantly made. Just waiting for chicks to hatch in 9 days time.
Elizabeth Pentleton
Really great service. Arrived earlier then expected. Can't wait to use it.
Colin
Excellent product ~easy to use and set up. The corrugated mats supplied by Brinsea however are totally unsuitable for hatching Chinese Painted Quail ~ because of their size and lack of weight the chicks have no grip on the corrugations ~ you will end up with chicks with splayed legs. Brinsea need to develop a different mat for Chinese Painted Quail ~ I suggest using a piece of short pile carpet or an old tea towel cut into the circular shape of the incubator. The service from The Incubator Shop is absolutely the very best in the industry ~ well done you are a pleasure to trade with.
Vanessa Hilton
7 out of 7 on my first attempt and 5 out of 6 on my next try.
J Roebuck
Love the little incubator, great for beginners and for small hatches, i get consistent results every time I use mine...100% on chicken eggs! keeps temperature and humidity well. I always recommend Brinsea to my customers :)
Storm Evans
I had no problems with this product. It made all of my eggs hatch, I couldnít believe it! Definitely will upgrade to a bigger one in the future. But recommend if you are hatching beginners.
Alessandra
I used this incubator to hatch silkie chicks there was a 50% hatch rate on first time. Really easy to set up and came with a care sheet for chicks. Very quick delivery. It is very easy to use. I highly recommend this incubator!
Leona Allen
So far everything has been eggcellent with this product. The instructions are very easy. It very good quality. Works just as it says. Keeps the temp perfectly. I'm only 5 days in to the hatching process so no idea what going on inside the eggs yet. Very pleased with this incubator. Really glad I spent a bit more and didn't go for a cheaper one.
M D Hoffnung
I had previously borrowed an old one with no success but this one is hugely more sophisticated. V helpful that factory settings pre-programmed for hens and now on day 16 with fingers crossed.
Keira Stallard
Such a wonderfully reliable and effortless incubator at the best price around. The service provided is faultless and the delivery could not be any better. So pleased to have found this company.
Michele
This product is amazing. The instructions were easy to read and understand, they certainly know their stuff, backup if required. Highly recommend this company. Have four happy healthy chicks.
Trudi
Iíve used this incubator twice; each time Iíve had 100% success rate. I would recommend, this product, which arrived quickly. it takes all the guess work out of hatching eggs.
