Features

The Brinsea Mini II EX is an ideal incubator for those who want full control of every aspect of the incubation period, this is particularly helpful for those people who want to incubate rare eggs such as Parrots and other exotic birds.

This incubator features all of Brinsea’s technology, new and old, and gives you the best chance of hatching your eggs.

Main Features

  • Digital temperature display range of 20.0-40.0°C (68.0-104.0°F)
  • Temperature display of °C or °F
  • Digital humidity Display
  • Automatic humidity control (built in pumping system)
  • 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 & small egg disk included)

One of the main features of this incubator is that it has full humidity control. It is fully integrated into the unit meaning that there is no separate pump that needs setting up or maintaining. With the pump being integrated, it means that the only external part that you need is a container for the water!

The humidity is controlled via the simple digital display on top of the incubator, the user sets the desired level and the pump ensures that the set level is maintained within its tolerances.

Questions & Answers

What’s 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.

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.

 

What does the term ‘fully automatic’ mean? Does it mean automatic turning, automatic humidity control and automatic temperature control?

If you see the term ‘ automatic’ in the item name, for example, the “Rcom 20 Max Incubator (Automatic)” or in the description, such as, “the ovation 28 Advance is a fully automatic incubator”, it generally refers to the egg turning; meaning the egg turning is fully automatic. ‘Automatic’ or ‘fully automatic’ does not refer to the humidity control or temperature control.

All incubators include a built-in thermostat, even those that do not have a digital display. So, temperature is always controlled automatically.

How to set-up or replace the humidity pump tube.

Here's a video guide to setting-up or replacing the humidity pump tube on Brinsea Mini II, Maxi II or Ovation EX models.

Customer Reviews

Darren Cartwright
This is incubation made easy. I purchased one last month and the results were very good.
James
Good product works well
The Henfolder
I have purchased several items from The Incubator Shop over the last couple of years, the latest purchase was a Brinsea Mini II EX Automatic Incubator which is the second purchase of the same product. The Mini II Ex works perfectly could be a tad bigger for duck eggs as they tend to catch against each other on the auto turning so I just turn them by hand AM & PM. The Incubator Shop price matched the product without any quibbles and refunded without any problems my additional £5.00 discount which was missed by their website when I placed my order. Excellent Company with helpful staff.
Pam
I ordered this for my grand daughter's 18th birthday. You were extremely helpful and she is thrilled and can't wait for her duck eggs to arrive.

Kat
My first ever incubator and pleased I went with recommendations to purchase the Brinsea Mini II EX Today we have two baby chicks already hatched and two more to follow (hopefully). Set up was a challenge but with a quick phone call to check we'd got it right we were all set! Highly recommended. :)

Brilliant incubators ideal for raptors
David Stallwood
This incubator is fantastic. Took a little while to figure out where things fitted but once done never forgotten. So easy to fit and set. The staff at the incubator shop are fantastic and helped me when I wanted to add something on. The communication is fantastic and very fast to reply. I can’t fault them and will always go to them for items in the future.
