    Can I use the 12 egg disc in my mini advance for bantam eggs? I know it says up to pheasant size eggs but I'm not sure how big those are

    I believe pheasant eggs are smaller than bantam eggs, and that the 12-egg disc wouldn't work for bantams. I have a Brinsea Mini Advance with the 7 egg disc, and that has worked excellent for my bantam eggs.

    Thanks ! I have 2 brinsea mini incubators that I really love but was hoping to just get 2 new disc instead of a new incubator to be more cost effective .

    I also have 2 Brinsea Mini Advanced incubators and the two different rings. It's a tight fit to use the 12 egg disc for bantam eggs (I have in a pinch). I have also used the 12 egg disc when going into "lock down" and turning is not required (if that helps) although, of course, the Mini Advanced can be programmed to stop turning as needed.
