Brinsea Mini II Advance Auto Incubator
The Brinsea Mini Advance provides automatic egg turning with autostop 2 days prior to hatching, countdown to date-of-hatch and temperature alarms on its digital display so you always know the status of your hatch.
Humidity is provided for with central water reservoirs operating at low voltage for safety.
The Brinsea Mini Advance incorporates digital micro-control which allows the user to manage incubator functions via a simple menu on the digital display. In normal operation the display shows incubation temperature, days to hatch and turning status. Opening the menu allows the user to adjust incubation temperature, the unit (°C or °F), turning interval, turning angle, number of days your eggs take to hatch and high and low temperature alarm limits.
Brinsea’s Mini Advance incubator is a fan assisted egg incubator holding up to 7 eggs which are turned automatically. Up to 12 smaller eggs (e.g. pheasant or quail) can be accommodated using the optional small egg disk. The combination of a simple yet accurate menu driven digital control, fan assistance and carefully directed airflow result in a machine which is deceptively sophisticated yet convenient and extremely easy to use. The digital display shows incubation temperature (in °C or °F), days remaining before hatch and turning status. The user can alter settings to control incubation temperature, temperature units, turning interval, turning angle, the number of days your eggs take to hatch from fresh and the high and low temperature alarm limits. If the number of days to hatch isn’t known then the automatic turning can be controlled by the user and easily turned off when the first egg cracks.
The Mini Advance incubator can accommodate eggs up to 65 mm in length. This includes most hens and ducks eggs, some turkey eggs but not goose eggs.
The high quality clear top allows you to see every second of an egg hatching from every angle. Brinsea’sMini incubators run at 12v for safety and are supplied with an Australian mains power adaptor.
Brinsea have now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for 2012 for proven increases in hatch rates. This feature turns the incubators heater and low temperature alarm off for a selected period but keeps the fan running. After the cooling period is complete the incubator reverts to normal temperature and the alarm is automatically reset.
The Brinsea Mini ECO and Mini Advance incubators are designed to be used by children as well as adults but they are not toys and children should only use them under adult supervision.
Please note: It is NOT possible to upgrade the Mini Eco and Mini Advance to become a Mini Advance EX as the control systems for each machine are different and they are not compatible with each other.
IMPORTANT:- Please ensure you use the water pot guard (Included with the incubator). After hatching, the smallest chicks (e.g. quail) can be at risk from drowning in the water pots. If you do not have the guard it is advised that small pebbles or marbles are placed in each water pot before hatching to reduce this risk. This will not reduce the evaporation of the water if the level is maintained to just above the pebbles.
