Why buy the Brinsea Ovation 56 Zoologica Incubator?
The Brinsea Ovation 56 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.
Zero-Impact Egg Roller Turning System– 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 Zoologica incubator which turns the eggs on rollers with digital controlled precision. The spacing between these alloy rollers can be adjusted to suit different egg sizes.
Automatic Egg Turning & Turning Angle Adjustment– 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.
Temperature Control– To maximise hatch rates, a successful incubator must maintain even air temperature. Brinsea’s computer modelled temperature mapping technology means no other brand on the market comes close. The Ovation 56 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.
Humidity Control– The Brinsea Ovation 56 Zoologica makes the task of controlling humidity much easier. Humidity levels are displayed on the digital display and if higher levels are required then you can simply lift the incubator lid and add water to the fill points. This will assist in obtaining higher hatch rates.
Fan Assisted Airflow– The Zoologica incorporates 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.
Incubator & Room Temperature Alarms– The Zoologica features 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 exotic eggs.
Biomaster™ Anti-Microbial Plastic– The warm damp conditions inside egg incubators are ideal breeding grounds for bacteria which can infect developing chicks causing unexplained hatching failure. To help combat this problem Brinsea use Biomaster™ silver nano technology, developed for medical applications to safely destroy bacteria on contact.
Warranty– The Brinsea Ovation 56 Zoologica Incubator comes with 3 years guaranteed warranty.
Other Available Models– The Brinsea Ovation 56 Zoologica is also available in a smaller capacity model, the Brinsea Ovation 28 Zoologica.
