The new Brinsea Ovation 28 Eco is the successor to the Octagon 20 Eco Incubator. The good news is that there have been significant improvements made on this model! The main improvement that has been made is that the incubator now has a fully digital display meaning that controlling the conditions inside the incubator are a lot easier.
The turning is now built into the incubator and the eggs are turned by sitting inside ‘egg carriers’ that rock back and forth. The standard egg carriers can fit 28 chicken or duck eggs in them and approximatley 48 quail eggs. There are larger egg carriers which can be purchased separately which allow the user to incubate 9 goose eggs and increase the capacity of the smaller eggs to 66 for quail.
Due to the display being digital, the temperature is accurately measured and controlled. This incubator uses Brinsea’s tried and tested electronic temperature control system that keeps an even temperature throughout the incubation chamber and makes sure there are no cold spots. You can adjust the temperature to suit the needs of the eggs you are incubating through the digital display. As it works in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, the adjustments can be made in increments of 0.1 of a degree.
To control the humidity on this incubator, you need to manually add water to it. To do this, you need to lift the lid and pour water down the side of the base which trickles into the water troughs in the base of the incubator. This will increase the humidity inside of the incubator.
If you are worried about the incubator keeping the correct temperature, then worry no more! The incubator is now fitted with high and low temperature alarms which alert the user when the temperature has gone too far above or below the optimum. It also has an external temperature alarm which alerts the user if the room is too warm or cold.
The incubator has also been manufactured with Biomaster’s anti-microbial plastics which stop bacteria forming on the incubator surface. This means that the environment in which the eggs are developing is a lot cleaner which will mean that you will lose less eggs over the life of the incubator.
It also comes with a 3 year warranty which requires you to register the product on Brinsea’s website
