If you are looking for a high-quality incubator at a good price, then look no further. The Brinsea Ovation 28 Advance has a host of quality features that ensure that every egg that you put in this incubator has the best chance of hatching.
The eggs sit in carriers that rock them side to side. There are four standard sized carriers that come with the incubator and these can hold about 28 chicken or duck eggs and around 48 quail eggs. If you want to increase the capacity of smaller eggs or incubate goose eggs in this incubator, then you can purchase the 3 larger carriers that can hold 9 goose eggs or up to 66 quail eggs. The turning can be controlled via the digital display that this incubator possesses.
As with all the incubators that Brinsea produce, the temperature is maintained and measured by their electronic temperature control system that works like a thermostat clicking in and out to accurately stay at the selected temperature. If you wish to change the temperature for any reason, then it can be adjusted up or down via the digital display. As the digital display of this ovation 28 advance incubator can show the temperature in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, you can adjust the temperature in increments of 0.1 of a degree.
This incubator cannot accurately control the humidity levels but it does show you what the level is. On the display, underneath where the temperature is shown, the humidity is also displayed. To adjust the humidity, you simply lift the lid of the incubator and pour water onto the base which works its way into the water troughs in the base. You do not have to disturb the eggs when putting the water in which is a bonus over other models.
To increase the chances of hatching every egg that you put into the incubator, Brinsea have added a cooling feature to this incubator. This is designed to mimic the natural nest as a sitting hen will get up to eat and drink at various times in the day leaving the eggs exposed to the elements. At the same time every day, if switched on, the incubator will stop the heating for a set period that the user sets. Please note that if you decide to use this feature, that you should only do so between day 7 and when the eggs are stopped from turning.
Another benefit of this incubator are the two differing temperature alarms. Both alert the user when the temperature is either too high or too low for ideal incubation conditions. One of the alarms is internal and the other monitors the external conditions.
The final point to mention is that the plastics that this incubator has been made with have been infused with an anti-microbial solution. This helps hatching rates as when bacteria lands on the plastic, it cannot survive or multiply due to the properties of the solution.
It also comes with a 3 year warranty which requires you to register the product on Brinsea’s website
