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 Eco is a fully automatic incubator in which the airflow is second to none. It comes complete with a fully digital temperature display 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.
In a ‘manual’ incubator, eggs must be turned ‘manually’, meaning you must turn each egg by hand usually around 3-4 times a day.
Automatic incubators will automatically turn the eggs for you. On some automatic machines, you can set the timings of the turns, as well as the duration or angle of the turn. This can be important if you’re incubating specialist birds such as falcons or exotic birds.
Semi-automatic incubators don’t require you to turn each egg by hand, but equally there is no motor to turn them for you either. So, normally semi-automatic machines have a handle or lever that you push and pull to roll or rock all the eggs at the same time. Or, some incubators have specially shaped bases that allow you to tilt the entire machine back and forth.
Please note that ‘manual’ and ‘automatic’, when used in the item name, only refers to the egg turning type. It does not relate to the humidity control or to any other feature.
The first difference between the Ovation 56 Eco 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 other difference is the that both the Rcom 50 Max and Pro have a humidity display and automatic humidity control, whereas the Ovation 56 Eco does not. 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 Eco.
|I have just had my first hatch of the 24 full eggs all of them have hatched I do not think I will get much better that the eggs were maran, copper black, and white leg horn all large fowl|
|Awesome service even during covid-19 - the incubator works like a dream and is all set up / used Brinsea incubators for years as they are reliable and you can easily obtain spares. This is a lovely one as you can see whatís happening - is quite noisy when on - awesome bit of kit|
|Ordered this as our other unbranded one was causing a lot of problems. Fingers crossed in a couple of weeks for a better hatching|
|Does what it says stable access to use . Both filled up in a week .|
|Incredible product, superb fast delivery as promised and very helpfull sales people who I needed to phone to group orders for next day delivery. Highly recommend|
|Great product delivered on time, many thanks|
|Fabulous product - after using an inferior incubator with no success and much heartache - I bought this. Completely reliable & easy to use - even for me as a beginner. I cannot speak highly enough of it!|
|Got really quick delivery. Products were well packed to reduce damage in transit. Got great hatch on my first batch of ducklings! British built, donít get any of the Chinese rubbish|
|Great, fast delivery, well packed. Only thing was some of the duck eggs didn't fit in the standard size egg cradles, which I didn't think were overly big egg. Only had a few days but so far very happy with purchase|
|I have this and many other brinsea products, in fact brinsea is the only brand i use. I purchased this one after having purchased a smaller one first and loved it. Its quite simply put the eggs in a leave it to it, no other intervention is needed. Only negatives.. They are quite difficult to clean, well not difficult,im just lazy and with this one you have to make sure you get the lid on correctly if your on rotate, the smaller one is a lot easier to do... All in all the positives outweigh and negatives and totally wipe the floor with anyother brand out there.|
