Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance incubator review
We decided to increase our
chances of success for our second round of incubation by upgrading to a
Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance Incubator. I don't really blame our hatching
problems on the Brinsea
Mini Advance Incubator,
but I do think that the larger model makes sense for our more difficult
incubation environment. Here are the features that sold me on
That said, there are a
few disadvantages to the Octagon 20 compared to the Mini incubator:
I also had a minor
problem that I hope none of you run into --- I assembled the egg-turner
and it was missing a piece. After second-guessing myself for a
while, I called Brinsea and they sent me out a replacement piece at no
cost, but the delay (just two working days, plus the weekend) meant the
hatching eggs I'd ordered online had to sit around while I waited on
the part. The delay might affect our first hatch in the new
incubator, but is already water under the bridge.
Our chicken waterer pays for itself in no time with clean water for your flock and less work for you.
