Brinsea is known to be innovators with regards to their incubators. To celebrate their 40th anniversary, Brinsea released a new range of incubators the Ovation 56 and Ovation 28. The Ovations are fitted with the latest in innovative incubator technology for an improved and more accurate incubation.
The Ovation 56 EX is a fully automatic incubator in which the airflow is second to none. It comes complete with a fully digital temperature & humidity display, automatic humidity control with its own built in pump and automatic egg turning. The egg turning is controlled via the digital display and can be set to turn at various intervals throughout the day. Eggs sit in egg baskets and the Ovation 56 comes with 8 egg baskets included.
|Hen||56 eggs / 8 standard egg baskets|
|Quail||110 eggs / 5 large egg baskets (optional extra)|
|Duck||50 eggs / 8 standard egg baskets|
|Goose||15 eggs / 5 large egg baskets (optional extra)|
*Note: Egg capacities are an estimation provided by the manufacturer, they are based on their calculations, using ‘standard’ sized eggs. For further details please contact us.*
There are 3 different versions of the Brinsea Ovation 56 Incubator. The Ovation 56 Eco, Ovation 56 Advance and the Ovation 56 EX. All 3 models have different features, some have features other models don’t. The Ovation 56 EX is the highest spec incubator out of the three but not everyone needs everything the EX comes with.

The three Ovation 56 machines have different features. The Ovation 56 Eco has a digital temperature display and automatic egg turning. It’s the most basic version of the three.
The Ovation 56 Advance is the mid-spec machine. It has all the same features as the Eco, except the Advance has a digital humidity readout too.
The top of the range machine is the Ovation 56 EX which has every feature from the Eco and Advance models; digital temperature display, digital humidity display and automatic egg turning. But the EX version also has automatic humidity control with a built-in pumping system. Whereas, on the Eco and Advance models, humidity must be controlled manually by filling water troughs inside the machine.
The only difference between the two machines is the size and egg capacity. The Ovation 56 is a larger machine and holds up to 56 hen-sized eggs or equivalent. Whereas the Ovation 28 holds 28 hen-sized eggs or equivalent.
The Eco, Advance and EX versions of the Ovation 28 match the specifications of the Eco, Advance and EX versions of the Ovation 56. The only difference is the egg capacity.
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.
The first difference between the Ovation 56 EX and the Rcom 50 Max and Pro is the egg capacity. The Ovation 56 holds more eggs; up to 56 hen-sized eggs or equivalent. The Rcom 50 Max and Pro models can hold up to 50 hen-sized eggs, or equivalent.
The Ovation 56 EX, the Rcom 50 Max and the Rcom 50 Pro all have a humidity display and automatic humidity control. But, the type of control is different as the Ovation uses a pumping system whereas the Rcom 50 Max and Pro both use a heated water humidification unit instead, giving them more precise control.
Finally, the Rcom 50 Pro has a ‘species selector’ feature and specific settings for egg-turning; both of which are unavailable on the Ovation 56 EX.
Here's a video guide to setting-up or replacing the humidity pump tube on Brinsea Mini II, Maxi II or Ovation EX models.
|Very Quick delivery and great incubator. First hatch completed very successfully. Good visibility and easy to clean. Very pleased|
|working perfect already used incubator to bring on 2 sets of chicks. more than happy with this product . keeps the humidity constant.|
|This review is for the zonation 56 but I have 3 Brinsea incubators and this review would fit any of them....Mainly it's knowing that I am giving the eggs I want to hatch the best possible chance of making it through incubation. Once the program is set I don't have to worry....just make sure that the water is topped and check the display to check the temperature etc each day and let the brilliant Brinsea's do their job. +++ THE HELP AND AFTER SALES SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING.You won't be fobbed off with 'It maybe this or it could be thst'. The Brinsea team know their stuff and sort your problem . No if' but's or maybe's...you will be given the right help and advice asap....or sooner!!Which is so importent when you have eggs to hatch or hatching The best is all that's good enough at Brinsea. PS.One small suggestion.... Could you please light the display panel....I wear a head torch to check it each day.|
|Excellent hatch first time using this model already had the 28 EX only downside was cleaning the screws holding the inner lid were very very tight as though they had been over tightened so only could give 4 stars|
|Amazing customer service !! Arrived really quick and have had no problems at all . Have ordered 2 of these now they are great !|
|I can recommend this incubator, itâ€™s excellent by doing its job. At the moment it was my first time to use the product. Maybe I could say something more next time. I will give the product 5 stars. Well done Brinsea.|
|I wish I could give a 5+ review! From the delivery, I had a bit of a problem with the set-up, called and they were just too willing to help. Now I have my first set of chicks from this product running all around!|

|First hatch was brillant, simple to use and does what it claims, the only downside is the lid cleaning it is fiddly but we are very happy|
