To coincide with Brinsea’s 40th year of manufacturing, they have released a full new range of egg incubators, the first of which is the Mini II Eco manual turn incubator.
This model is a great entry level incubator as it has a fantastic viewing window so you can see all of the eggs at all times. The other benefit of this incubator is that you have to be very involved with it as you turn the eggs manually, this means it can be a very handy educational tool too.
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 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.
Don’t know what incubator is right for you? Too many models to choose from and don’t know the difference between them. See our comparison below between the three different Mini II incubators.
