Brinsea mini advance Eco incubator

Mini advance incubator with eggs waiting

We got the Brinsea mini advance Eco incubator in the mail yesterday.

The room temperature should be no lower than 63 degrees, which is why we located it right above the space heater. One of the innovative features is an alarm that will beep at you when it's too hot or too cold. The instructions say to let it run a day to see if your chosen spot is cozy enough.

One thing we couldn't figure out last night was why it was beeping every 45 minutes. Turns out each time it rotates the eggs it also gives a gentle beeping sound that was lower than the alarm when the temperature is wrong, but it's still a noise. Not a big deal unless you're trying to sleep in the same room, which is why we changed it to under the sink on a shelf with the space heater directly below.
