The Brinsea TLC 40 Eco 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 Eco 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.

Main Functions

  • Professional exterior design
  • Digital temperature display
  • Display choice of °C or °F
  • Twin stage air filter, for removal of harmful bacteria
  • Positive pressure with gentle fan ventilation
  • Accurate and adjustable digital temperature control
  • Tough, clear hinged door with secure catch 
  • Smooth and easy to clean 
  • Detachable water tray for easy control of the moisture in the air

Digital Temperature Control is a must-have feature when rearing specialist birds. The TLC 40 gives the user precise and accurate temperature control that can be adjusted at the push of a button.

A twin stage air filter ensures that harmful bacteria and fungal spores are effortlessly removed from the brooding chamber; air is gently circulated by an internal fan in a way that minimises airborne dust; and the whole unit can be easily disassembled for easy and effective cleaning.

A detachable water tray is included for easy control of the moisture in the air. Correct humidity prevents dehydration in the birds and accurately recreates the nest environment.

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.

Absolutely brilliant incubator! We use it for our orphaned animals and it does wonders maintaining constant temperature therefore reducing stress
Phil Thompson
A great bit of kit. We use it for rearing exotic bird hatchlings. My only improvement would be yo be able to vary the fan speed. This is probably available on more expensive models.
Excellent product and incredibly fast delivery. Highly recommend The Incubator Shop.
