    How many of you have had good hatch rates with Brinsea incubators? I have the mini eco and Love it but it's small and I may have to upgrade for next spring in order to hatch more at once.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have had 96-100% with my Brinsea ECO 20. I am trying ducks for the first time now. I am on day 11.
    So far so good.

    Brisnea is thee "Manuiire" here at Byc [​IMG] (popculture reference)
    90% of members will tell you that they have the best incubators. In fact, I don't think Brinsea would even be in business without us.
    I recommend the Brinsea Eco 20. Its the most popular model and holds around 20 eggs.

    Well, this makes me feel more confident! I just bought an Eco Advance last week and, on day 6 I'm 7 for 7! So far, I really love this incubator! [​IMG]

    We ran 4 Brinsea 20 this year, recently sold off two and still have two running literally non stop. As soon as a hatch finishes we clean, reset and go again with no down days between. Ducks (including calls) peafowl, quail, chickens all hatch with high % numbers. Will be adding their cabinet this next year.

    Another Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance lover here, couldn't say enough good things about it, well other than its cost. Have hatched Chicks and poults in it

    I bought one of FLChickens Brinsea 20 Eco's - had 16 of 17 viable eggs hatch! Got 15 more in there now. GREAT incubator. Easy to use, easy to regulate humidity - I'd love another! [​IMG]
