Review this product

Brinsea's Mini Advance incubator is a fan assisted egg incubator holding up to 7 eggs which are turned automatically. Up to 12 smaller eggs (e.g. pheasant or quail) can be accommodated using the optional 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), days remaining before hatch and turning status. The user can alter settings to control incubation temperature, temperature units, turning interval, turning angle, the number of days your eggs take to hatch from fresh and the high and low temperature alarm limits. If the number of days to hatch isn't known then the automatic turning can be controlled by the user and easily turned off when the first egg cracks.

The Mini ADVANCE incubator can accomodate eggs up to 65mm in length. This includes most hens and ducks eggs, some turkey eggs but not goose eggs.

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 a mains power adaptor.

Brinsea have now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for 2012 for proven increases in hatch rates. This feature turns the incubator’s 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. Further information on the benefits of cooling in incubation can be found by clicking here...

The Mini ADVANCE 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.

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.

I forgot to add I have successfully hatched, Quail, Guinea Fowl, Chickens & Ducks in this brilliant incubator. I am just getting it back of loan from a friend, who has been successfully hatching umpteen clutches of chickens, so that I can hatch another clutch of ducks. The only down side is that the humidity container can not be added on ~ Shame

I own and use this mini ~ it is fantastic, excellent hatch rate, easy to use, easy to clean ~ love it

We love our Brinsea Mini Advance Incubator because it is giving children in classrooms the chance to get up close to hatching chicks. We use it in our classroom hatching project and, just like our two Brinsea 20 Octagon Advance EX incubators, it gives us great results every time but with even better visibility for the children.

My Favourite Brinsea product to date is the Mini Advance Incubator, This is my first time incubating anything ! From this I have successfully hatched; 2 Miniature Runner Ducklings, 2 Magpie Duckling, 8 Coturnix Quail.  and at the moment have 6 Guinea Fowl eggs awaiting hatching. This wonderful incubator has taken a lot of the guess work out of incubating eggs, it also allows me to work full time, run a house, feed children, hubby and animals, whilst still having the enjoyment and pleasure of incubating my own animals. It really fits in with the modern lifestyle. However, I still love my incubator but have requested the octagon 20 advance ex as a birthday present, as I have come to realise how important humidity is in the success of hatching eggs.

I love my new Brinsea Mini Advance because it has hatched us a gorgeous call duckling this summer! She is our first girl and we are especially over the moon with her, as we normally hatch only boys. I have had two Mini Advance incubators now, and I like the new cooling function for extra controllability.

My Mini Advance egg incubator has now hatched 7 sittings of hens goose and quail eggs with marvelous results. The instructions supplied at time of purchase were clear and easy to follow.At the time of purchase from Scats of Billingshurst  West Sussex I was looking for a larger model which they didn't have instock so I settled for the Advance Mini .I was not disappointed with the results I have had so far.I have recomended it to several friends who have also purchased the same with good results Yours

my favourite Brinsea product is my Mini Advance incubator which is so easy to use and is much better than my friends which was made abroad. I have hatched out lots of chicks and bantams and now have 6 turkey eggs on the go.

My favourite Brinsea product is the Brinsea mini advance 7 egg automatic incubator - with the 12 egg tray for hatching Chinese quail eggs. The reason this is my favourite Brinsea product is " it is so easy to use, I can even use it".

I work in a school teaching kindergarten.  I brought my Brinsea Mini Advance in, so that we could hatch chicks.  This is such a wonderful experience for the kids and I knew from experience that we could have confidence in this incubator.  Thank you so much for such a well designed product.

Snady Reid 15/09/2014 5 stars

I am so impressed with the ease of use, reliability,hatching rates and overall performance of my Brinsea Mini Advance incubator and Eco glow heater. I've used them for 5 years and they've not let me down. I always hoped one day to have a overview candler to share the development of chicks inside the eggs with my children. Thank you Brinsea for many happy hatching years :-)

Peter Waldock 02/07/2014 5 stars

I bought my mini advance over a year ago and have hatched out over a hundred ducks and chickens in it since buying plus countless quail and It has never let me down. I would thoroughly recommend it as a incubator and well worth the money. Peter

I purchased this incubator for my first attempt at hatching chicken eggs. I incubated 7 Barnevelder eggs and had a 100% success rate, so needless to say I was impressed. I would recommend this incubator for anyone only wanting to incubate a small number of eggs, with the convenience of automatic egg-turning.

Mark Langford 27/06/2014 5 stars

I bought product after reading such good reviews, I had been looking at buying a cheep incubator for a while and had my eyes on an import, but after reading so many reviews I though I would spend the extra little bit of money and get a Brinsea mini advance. I have not been disappointed, easy to setup, easy instructions, and a perfect 100% hatch rate. I am currently just hatching my 3 batch and I cant fault it. The only fault I have with this product is the base, as I have to put some kitchen roll on the bottom after removing the try, just before hatching, but that doesn't affect recommending this product as it makes it easier to clean after hatch. Cant recommend the Brinsea range highly enough

Brilliant little incubator & really well written instructions for a change! Found it easy to use & only lost one chick while hatching from 3 clutches. I made kitchen roll circles to put on the base the day prior to hatching, it might be quite nice to include a couple of made to measure mats to replace the egg turner.

good bit of kit had mine over a year now no trouble at all ,so simple to set up even a dip like myself found it simple to set up had some good hatches from it, malcolm

Susan Lazell 27/06/2014 5 stars

Brilliant little incubator I have always had 100 % hatch rate I used Chinese quail eggs, and all turned out to be perfect little chicks.

Alan Rigg 27/06/2014 5 stars

Have used the Mini Advance Incubator twice now with 100 % hatch success rate. Seemed a little complicated when reading the instructions prior to use, but was actually very easy to set up, the menu system being very intuitive (the menu quick reference in the manual being very helpful). Would not hesitate to recommend this product, being well built, as is the Brinsea EcoGlow 20 brooder I also bought.

svante lindman 27/06/2014 5 stars

My New Mini Advance Incubator is a Fantastic machine in both designe and Function . You can not Fail. A better Machine is very hard to Find.

Susan 17/03/2014 5 stars

Brillian piece of kit currently on day 18 of hatching green legged partridges and all is working brilliantly. Would definately recommend this product.

Robert Wiggins 26/09/2013 5 stars

First class buy, even better when you watch your chicks hatch. So easy even for the novice like me. Just follow the Brinsea advice that comes with the Mini. Can't go wrong.
