The latest model in Brinsea's OvaEasy Cabinet Range. Medium Capacity Single Stage, fully automatic Incubator.
OvaEasy 100 Advance Series II is suitable for the following species (Approx capacities only) Numbers quoted are with optional species-specific trays. Numbers will differ when using Brinsea's standard universal trays as provided with incubator purchase.
|96 x eggs||60 x eggs|
|118 x eggs||118 x eggs|
|30 x eggs||496 x eggs|
|60 x eggs||N/a
The OvaEasy 100 has the construction and facilities of the larger machines with a couple of exceptions; Unlike the 190 and 380, it has no separate hatcher in the bottom. It can set and hatch up to 96 hens eggs if the optional species-specific hen egg trays are used. But with the 2 x standard adjustable egg trays (Supplied) it holds 72 hens eggs and also includes hatching covers to contain the chicks as they hatch.
A direct drive turning system is used which turns the trays a bit faster than the other OE models, but otherwise works in the same way and is fully programmable. The water reservoir is in the bottom of the OE100 – just like the OE Hatcher. As with all Ova Easy models, the OE100 can be used with or without the EX humidity pump. The very accurate control of temperature and humidity (with the pump), along with the internal (and unique) external alarm features of the larger OvaEasy models are all retained.
The OvaEasy Advance Series II is fitted with Brinsea's proven digital control system which provides a range of useful and easy-to-use extra features like humidity readout and temperature alarms. It can be easily upgraded to EX specification providing fully automatic humidity control.
This incubator is also available as an EX version which provides fully automatic humidity control. Can be purchased as a plug-in upgrade to Advance models.
Performance and Ease of Use
Four small fans blowing air in lamina flow around the egg chamber provide much better temperature distribution than a single, large fan. This approach, coupled with the high levels of insulation mean that temperature is extremely evenly distributed throughout the egg chamber, ensuring good hatch rates, time after time.
Eggs are held in removable trays and the user can configure their incubator to their needs by the choice of trays available. Universal trays are adjustable for egg size from quail through to goose and are supplied as standard.
The hatching trays come complete with removable covers to contain the chicks during hatching.
The convenient control panel allows the user to adjust the temperature, humidity (EX versions only) ventilation and turning easily. Temperature and humidity levels are shown on a calibrated digital display on the front of the panel.
The fully automatic turning can be switched off from the control panel while the eggs are being accessed or during hatching. Brinsea has now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators 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.

Construction – durable and energy-efficient
The Ova-Easy models have fully protected steel chassis which are rigid and rust resistant with laminated high density polystyrene sides providing good thermal insulation and smooth, easy to clean surfaces. The transparent, double glazed door provides thermal insulation plus the convenience of total visibility of eggs and hatched chicks.
OvaEasy Advance EX
The EX version provide Improved control for valuable and hard-to-incubate eggs
Humidity is a crucial factor in the success (or otherwise) of eggs and the EX versions of the OvaEasy Advance incubators put accurate control of humidity in the hands of the user.
The standard OvaEasy Advance incubators provide a continuous readout of incubation humidity but require the user to alter humidity to achieve the ideal average level. The EX version with the Humidity Pump effectively maintains the humidity level precisely at the level the user sets irrespective of changes in room humidity and so overcomes problems that can commonly lead to eggs failing to hatch – especially in the latest stages of incubation. The Humidity Pump includes an external water reservoir eliminating the chances of water in the incubator harbouring bacteria.
The Humidity Pump module is designed to work seamlessly with the OvaEasy Advance incubators and can be purchased later as an upgrade from Advance to Advance EX
