There is a guy near here who uses Brinsea units to hatch parrot eggs, some of which are worth huge amounts of money (Macaws etc). I went to a talk he gave about the Brinseas and definitely came away with the view that they are a high quality machine. Very reliable, accurate and adjustable too, which is needed for VIP difficult-to-hatch eggs like the parrot eggs.

Cocoa, if he has a business in Queanbeyan (Priam), he is useful for emergency supplies such as ceramic globes, thermometers, hygrometers

I am looking to improve my tragic hatch rate so looking at getting away from cheaper bators and getting higher end incubator ... seems like brinsea and maybe rcom fit that criteria ... open to other brands if someone can recommend a few !!

That's the guy, Sue :)


Simon.r, how many eggs do you want to incubate at any one time? And what species?
