The Brinsea Maxi II Eco is a brand-new manual turn incubator fresh off the production line! To celebrate Brinsea being 40 years old, they have released a new line of incubators starting with this one. It can hold up to 30 bird eggs, it has fantastic airflow and is great for those who like to be involved with the incubation process.
The temperature in this incubator is controlled by Brinsea’s extremely accurate electronic temperature control and can be manually adjusted using the turning screw on the top of the incubator. The correct incubation temperature of 37.5 degrees is what the incubator comes set as. You can measure the temperature by looking at the provided Liquid In Glass Thermometer.
- Temperature measured by a Liquid In Glass Thermometer (included)
- Automatic Humidity control

- Fan assisted airflow

- Ventilation control

- Incubator capacity 30 bird eggs & 90 quail eggs based on ‘standard sized’ eggs (no trays required, 1 hatching mat supplied)
To increase the humidity above natural levels, you can add water into the incubator via the external top up point which is on the side of the incubator. Once water is poured into here, it travels into the central reservoir and evaporates increasing the humidity levels.
The eggs in this incubator need to be turned by hand at least 3 times a day. They also need to be turned opposite ways each time starting with clockwise and then anti-clockwise and so on. It is recommended to put a cross on one side and a circle on the other so you know that all eggs have been turned.
