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.
