Review this product

Brinsea's Mini ECO incubator is a fan assisted manual turn egg incubator holding up to 10 hens eggs or equivalent. The combination of proven electronic temperature control, fan assistance, carefully directed airflow and a specially made glass thermometer result in a machine which is deceptively sophisticated yet extremely easy to use. The Mini ECO comes factory set to the commonest incubation temperature but this can be adjusted if necessary. The high quality clear top allows you to see every second of an egg hatching from every angle.

The Mini ECO is covered by Brinsea's free 3 year quarantee (just follow the user instructions to register online).

The Brinsea Mini ECO and Mini ADVANCE incubators are designed to be used by children as well as adults but they are not toys and children should only use them under adult supervision.  Both models run from 12v for safety and are supplied with a mains power adaptor.

Please note:  It is NOT possible to upgrade the Mini Eco and Mini Advance to become a Mini Advance EX as the control systems for each machine are different and they are not compatible with each other.

IMPORTANT:- After hatching, the smallest chicks (e.g. quail) can be at risk from drowning in the water pots. 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.


Now protected by Biomaster antimicrobial additive: proven to reduce bacterial growth by 99.99% and 100% safe for eggs, chicks and humans. Protects hatches from microbial transfer by cross contamination helping to reduce unexplained hatching failures.

This incubator is very good, but in my last hatch the number of eggs that fit in was far to high. I put seven in, and one chick that had nearly totally dried got trapped between 2 eggs and died.

I absolutely love brinesea and the magic of hatching eggs. At the moment I have the incubator that holds 7 eggs but hoping to update soon. We only do it as a hobby and my 4 children love to learn about chicks and how they grow. We love doing the candling to see which ones have taken and we would love the ova scope especially the kids as at the moment my daughter is doing a piece of work for school all about hatching her eggs and the chick cycle. This would be really interesting for us all to see what goes on in that egg especially my children as they love to learn.

I love the little 7 egg incubator as I live in a small apartment and its small compact size is great! Also the I love watching the little guys peck out into the real world!

Brinsea egg incubator easy to operate and used it four times and had very good results

We are very new to hatching Chickens and purchased a Mini Eco Incubator instead of Easter Eggs earlier this year. Our two boys have loved turning the eggs and have had great success with it. Even when it went wrong and it was returned to you for repair recently we soon had it back and can’t wait to use it again.

i have a brinsea mini eco incubator its the best incubator i have ever had 100% hatch rate every time i have set last set i set 5 duck eggs all hatched and are waddling around the garden,previously set 7 hen eggs all hatched,its great also because because you can watch them hatch through the see through cover,and they all hatched on the correct day as the manual said.temp gauge and turning are manual but it adds to the fun.i will be buying brinsea products again in the future.

Hello, really i am interested in, i see the item is very good and the company is well-known , thank you

jack 02/07/2014 5 stars

Ive brought one of these mini eco incubators and really could not fault it in anyway what so ever i have had it just over a year now and had many successful hatches with it and never had to adjust the temp setting on it just plug it in the day before i want to put the eggs in and the temp is spot on everytime! im considering buying the eco 20 aswell as keeping the mini eco as i have friends who use these and always have perfect hatches and temps with them i really could not fault brinsea at all and with a 2 year free guarantee aswell it just proves they sell decent goods and not cheap things from china! keep up the good work brinsea and i will hopefully be purchasing the eco 20 from you soon :) thanks

Absolute Fantastic, Just like the mini advance but manual, great and easy to use we have used this product for many years and can't fault Brinsea at all, what a fantastic product and company.

Sarah Taylor 27/06/2014 5 stars

Really love the incubator, have had it for a year now, and achieved 100% success with all fertile eggs we incubated!

I have used it once and got 75% (3 out of 4) success. I satisfy the result. 27/06/2014 4 stars

Ik ben sinds kort in het bezit van een eco mini Brinsea broedmachine en hij bevalt prima. Zeker als het puur hobby matig is en je niet veel eieren wilt uit broeden. Het zelf keren van de eieren is ook prima te doen. Ik ben zeer tevreden! Groetjes Sabrina

Simon Lawton 27/06/2014 5 stars

I have one of these as well as the mini advance but this one is manual turn and with my clumsy big Mitts, I worry about turning delicate Eggs by hand. The Incubator is faultless and I am hopefully firing her up soon to try and hatch some Tortoise Eggs as they don't need turning!! Take a few months to hatch apparently, but I have every confidence in this quality bit of Kit!

C Rowley 27/06/2014 5 stars

i bought a cheap import mini inccy. worst thing i ever did. virtually nothing hatched. bought one of these, best thing ever. 80% hatch rate. its easy to use, easy to clean, instructions are clear and concise. you get what you pay for. cant recommend highly enough!

Julia Cornes 27/06/2014 5 stars

After the disaster of losing all my eggs on my first attempt my incubator was replaced and I successfully hatched a single duck egg out of a batch of damaged(dropped, but not by me!) eggs. George (my duck) now has two female companions. I do not cease to be amazed at the wonder of creating life. George was obviously an example of the survival of the fittest but would not have had a chance without the superb and simple to use incubator.

Richard Crawford 17/03/2014 4 stars

Very good product, however wish I had gone with the advanced version as when im at work its easier for the wife to then adjust temperatures if needed. Also the advance is auto turn. Otherwise this product is very good for the beginner however think I will be upgrading next year. If the mini eco had a digital temperature function that would make it a lot more functional for people.

Connor Madden 06/08/2013 5 stars

Its my first time using an incubator and my friend told me about this one and its great for beginners! The best part is that its affordable also the instructions are really helpful and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to hatch a few eggs!

Kelly Hodgson 29/11/2012 5 stars

Fantastic product so easy to use with clear instructions I have had a brilliant hatch rate while using this little beauty. Would recommend to any one beginners and experienced people alike.

Alexandra 22/11/2012 3 stars

I had three successful small batches with this easy to use little incubator and as my confidence grew I tried a bigger batch. Two days before hatching the incubator stopped producing hot air. I cleaned it but nothing helped. However, I am talking to Brinsea and they have responded really quick. I would be keen to get another one. I am a child, and thought it was great to use (while it was going!).
