Brinsea Mini-Advance

I really can't say enough about how pleased I am with this incubator.  I am currently using it for my 5th hatch, and have no complaints so far in its function.

It is small (7 egg capacity for chicken eggs), which is a perfect size for  clutches of "specialty" eggs and backyard farmers like James Hill. Brinsea does offer very similar models that have larger capacity, but this one suits our needs very well.  Made of thick yellow plastic base with a clear domed lid, it has all the features required for a successful hatch: fan, water reservoir, self-regulating heating element with temperature readout, and automatic turning rack.  

Operation of the unit is simple.  Place your eggs in, pour distilled water into the reservoir, and replace the lid. Click through the menu buttons located on the top of the unit to select length of hatch, temperature, turning interval and angle, high/low temperature alarms and optional cooling feature.  Settings are displayed on a digital readout right next to the menu buttons.  Click to save settings, and your incubation is underway!  The base, turning unit and lid clean up easily after hatch. 

My favorite feature is the visibilty provided by the clear lid.  You can see each egg so you can watch for pips, then monitor your chicks while they hatch.  If I had to improve anything about the design of this unit, it would be to include some mechanism through which to add water when neccessary.  You do have to remove the lid to add water, and this particular model does not give a read-out of the humidity level.

We are very pleased with the function of this little incubator, and felt their pricing was fair for the product you are getting.  Find out more about this or larger units at http://www.brinsea.com
