The Ovation 28 EX is the most sophisticated incubator that Brinsea have produced. One of their new incubator to celebrate 40 years of manufacturing, the Ovation 28 EX contains all Brinsea’s best features and offers the user complete control over the environment that the eggs are developing in.
This incubator has fully automatic egg turning. The eggs sit in egg carriers that rock them back and forth throughout the day. The incubator comes with 4 standard egg carriers that in total can hold about 28 chicken or duck eggs. They can also hold around 48 quail eggs. Larger egg carriers that allow you to incubate both more smaller eggs and goose eggs are available.
Fitted with Brinsea’s electronic temperature control, this incubator offers the user complete piece of mind that the temperature on the digital display, is exactly the temperature inside the incubator. The temperature can be adjusted if required, although it comes factory set at 37.5 degrees Celsius.
The main advantage of this incubator is that is contains a built-in humidity pump. This pump accurately maintains the humidity levels inside the incubator that the user has set. Once the user has set the desired humidity, the pump will draw water through the silicon tubing and will deposit it into the incubator. The water then makes its way into the base and onto the humidity pads which are the essential component in regulating the humidity. Once the humidity reaches the desired levels, the pump will click in and out in the same manner as a thermostat. All that is needed is an external water source, this can be as simple as a bucket or an empty water bottle!
To give all the eggs the best chance of hatching out, Brinsea have decided to incorporate an anti-microbial additive to the plastic in the manufacturing process. This additive kills bacteria as soon as it encounters it and therefore doesn’t allow it to grow and reproduce causing damage to the eggs and birds.
The Ovation 28 EX also alerts the user if the temperature inside the incubator has got too high or too low. It also does the same for the external room temperature. These alarms enable the best environment for the incubator to hatch out as many eggs as possible.
One of Brinsea’s main aims is to create the perfect environment for eggs to hatch out, one of the main ways of achieving this has been spent trying to mimic the natural nest. The latest improvement to their incubators in the cooling feature. This has been developed with the fact that the hen will not sit on the eggs for 24 hours of the day, she needs to move around and have some food and drink. Therefore the cooling option allows the user to turn of the heating for a period of time every day. This feature should only be used from day 7 until the day you stop the egg turning.
It also comes with a 3 year warranty which requires you to register the product on Brinsea’s website
