This new incubator model, Brinsea's Maxi II Ex, holds 14 hens’ eggs. The new series has the same great features as the first Brinseas, with some added convenience. This top-of-the-line model is the most convenient of all of the mid-sized Brinseas because everything is automated.
Precise electronic temperature control with alarms, circulating air to keep the temperature even throughout the chamber, automatic egg turning, integrated peristaltic water metering pump for automatic humidity control.
You do have to add the fertile eggs yourself! ;-)
The water pump humidity control system comes partly assembled (you must hook up a tube; instructions with illustrations are provided). You must also provide a water container, such as a water bottle, as a source for your humidity pump. And your fertile eggs!
The factory temperature is preset at 99.5 F but it is adjustable. There is a digital temperature indicator but you will also be provided with a conventional glass thermometer to double check your incubator's temperature.
For this model with automatic humidity control, you'll also need space to set your water container on the same flat surface with the incubator, so it can be hooked to the pump. The water container cannot be placed on top of the incubator.
Register your incubator with the manufacturer and be eligible for a 3-year warranty!
If you're looking for a lower priced mid-sized incubator with fewer automated features, please check out the Maxi II Eco and the Maxi II Advance. You might also enjoy the Maxi II Advance Classroom Pack.
Do not purchase your hatching eggs until you have received and set up your incubator.
