Brinsea’s Mini EX Incubator is a premium model based on the Mini Advance. The EX provides vital additional features for breeders of small numbers of highly valuable eggs and is particularly suitable for parrots’ eggs. The EX version replaces the countdown to hatch feature of the Advance with accurate management of incubation humidity with Brinsea’s proven humidity control system: just dial in the desired humidity level, keep the water reservoir topped up and the incubator does the rest. Furthermore the EX gives the user the ability to select a wide range of turning intervals ideal for parrots.
The Mini EX incubator is a fan assisted egg incubator holding up to 7 eggs (Macaw sized eggs) which are turned automatically. Up to 12 smaller eggs (African Grey, Eclectus, Conure, Lorikeets, etc) can be accommodated using the 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). The user can alter settings to control incubation temperature, temperature units, turning interval, turning angle.
The high quality clear top allows you to see every second of an egg hatching from every angle. Brinsea’s Mini 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 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, Mini Advance and Mini EX incubators are designed to be used for the education of children as well as by 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 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. 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.
All Brinsea products (including all incubators) are made in the UK with 240v Australian plugs as standard. No adaptor is needed for use in Australia.
