Brinsea Ovation Zoologica Parrot Egg Incubator

Parrot breeders have known that the main compromise when using an incubator designed for hens’ eggs is that the turning isn’t sophisticated enough.

Some parrots turn their eggs almost continually during incubation and so to replicate this Brinsea have developed the Ovation Zoologica incubators which turn the eggs on rollers with digital controlled precision.

The spacing between these alloy rollers can be adjusted to suit different egg sizes. The Zoologica incubators feature our pinpoint control of temperature and humidity along with alarms to warn of power failure or wild room temperature changes to ensure the best possible hatching results for your exotic eggs.

The temperature control is further improved with the filled insulated base. The Ovation 28 Zoologica holds at least 20 African Grey sized eggs and the Ovation 56 holds double that number so there’s a model to suit most applications. Like all Brinsea incubators, these new models are made in UK and come with a FREE 3 year guarantee, subject to simple online registration.

‘These new exotic egg incubators represent class-leading technology with the finest incubation management available and are more advanced and refined than some well-regarded incubators costing over twice the price. 

Zoologica are highly specified egg incubators designed for exotic birds' eggs. Precision control of temperature, automatic humidity and flexible roller turning of eggs and rigid insulation-filled base. Egg capacity of 40 African Grey Parrot sized eggs.

The Brinsea Ovation 28 Zoologica is a high-performance incubator specifically designed for exotic birds' eggs, especially parrots, where smaller and delicate eggs are turned on rollers that rotate smoothly.

The high-specification, adjustable turning interval and angle makes it ideal for eggs that require frequent, precise turning.

The Ovation 28 Zoologica builds on the highly accurate digital control of temperature and humidity of the EX model with an insulation-filled base and heavy plinth to further improve temperature distribution and overall rigidity. In addition to programmable adjustment of turning interval the Zoologica models also allow fine adjustment of egg turning angle from 5° to 180° for an egg of 45mm diameter - smaller eggs can be turned at a greater angle if desired.

Despite its sophistication the Ovation 28 Zoologica  uses factory default settings to ensure it's easy to use straight from the box yet still allows unparalleled flexibility over the control of temperature, humidity and egg turning. An egg capacity of 20 African Grey-sized eggs - and the flexible roller system means that smaller eggs can be accommodated in greater numbers.

Approximate egg capacities:

  • Finch - 40
  • Cockatiel, Lovebird - 30
  • African Grey, Eclectus, Amazon, Cockatoo, Small Macaw - 20

Protected by Biomaster antimicrobial additive: proven to reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% and 100% safe for eggs, chicks and humans. Protects the incubator from microbial growth by reducing the risk of cross contamination and provides a more hygienic environment for your eggs.

The Zoologica features Brinsea' s new 'Induced Dual Airflow' system which represents a breakthrough in incubator design and achieves new levels of temperature consistency for optimum incubation conditions.
