The Brinsea TLC 40 Advance offers all the features needed to successful raise the newborn chicks of "Altricial" bird species; including Parrots, Hawks, Owls and many other species. The TLC 40 Advance also provides an ideal environment in which to care for sick or injured birds or small animals.

Designed with simplicity and functionality in mind, the TLC 40 is exceptionally easy to use and offers excellent value for money.

Using the built-in alarm warns the user in the event of extreme high or low temperatures and will also sound in the event of power failure. This gives the user added confidence and peace of mind when caring for young, sick or injured birds.

Questions & Answers

What’s the difference between a TLC Eco and TLC Advance?

The main difference between the TLC Eco’s and TLC Advance’s is the humidity display and humidity control function. The TLC Eco doesn’t have a humidity display and the humidity must therefore be controlled manually.

The TLC Advance models also have an interior LED lighting system.

The Advance model has a humidity display, and although the humidity still must be controlled manually, you can optionally purchase a humidity pump that provides automatic humidity control. This difference in specification applies to all the TLC 40 and 50 range.

The TLC 30 range is slightly different. A TLC 30 Eco does not have a digital display, it simply has a liquid in glass thermometer to display the temperature. The temperature can be adjusted via a dial. The TLC 30 Advance features a digital temperature display and the temperature is adjusted using buttons on the display. Neither the TLC 30 Eco or Advance have a humidity display or any humidity control.

Customer Reviews

J Nichols
Great little incubator ideal for helping poorly hedgehogs and other little wild animals. Very pleased.
paul murray
We bought this incubator to donate to our local hedgehog rescue charity. It has been used a few times in the week since they had it. It brought relief to its occupants. We gave it in its box so we do not know if it was easy to set up
