Poultry Eggs or Parrot Eggs

For expensive and endangered species’ eggs, the preferred choice would be the Octagon 20 Advance over the Octagon 20 ECO. It’s not so much a question of hatchability, but the main reason being that the Advance offers more control over the incubation environment (temperature alarms and readout of humidity even when not used with the humidity pump).


Octagon 20 ECO – The Reliable yet Affordable Incubator

  • The NEW! Octagon 20 Eco egg incubator is a simple but high quality egg incubator using the same tough and insulted cabinet as the Octagon 20 Advance coupled to a simple well proven electronic temperature control to give reliable hatching results of a wide range of species with minimum fuss.
  • Egg Capacity: Quail – 60; Pheasant – 40; Hen – 24; Duck – 20; Goose – 9/12


Octagon 20 Advance & Advance Ex

  • 20 chicken egg capacity or equivalent with universal tray.
  • Digital control and display of temperature. Digital display of humidity.
  • Octagon 20 Advance Ex: Digital display and control of humidity with external ADVANCE Humidity Pump


Octagon 20 Incubation Classroom Pack

  • Complete chick incubation and embryology kit for hatching chickens or ducks in the classroom – Suitable for ages 6 and up

Octagon 20 ECO – The Economical, yet Reliable, Alternative

  • Two models: Manual Egg Turning & Automatic Egg Turning

The Octagon 20 ECO fills the need for a basic but high quality and reliable small incubator at a very affordable price.

This new model combines the plastic cabinet of the Octagon 20 Advance and the analogue control from the older, but proven Octagon 20 DX. The Octagon 20 ECO fits the same Autoturn cradle as the Advance but is much simpler to use:

Note: There is no facility for humidity measurement or control in the ECO incubator — this incubator is specifically designed for the cost-conscious and those who require simplicity over features.

Features Include:

  • Egg capacity of 24 hens eggs or equivalent
  • Simple and accurate proportional band electronic temperature control
  • Temperature factory preset at 99.5 F but easily adjusted with an easy tamper-proof screw adjuster.
  • Flashing temperature indicator and conventional but accurate liquid in glass thermometer
  • Fan assisted air circulation proof adjustment
  • Good visibility of the eggs
  • Tough and hygienic cabinet
  • Insulated for low energy use and optimal temperature distribution
  • Warranty: 2 years.

Technical Features:

Control system

The Octagon 20 Eco controls temperature with high accuracy using a proven proportional band electronic controller with easy tamper-proof adjustment. A flashing indicator shows that the incubation temperature is being controlled steadily and temperature is monitored with a purpose made liquid in glass thermometer.


The high quality incubator cabinet is entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes it tough and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss leading to lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The top of the incubator is clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks.

Humidity and ventilation

Air is circulated by a long life computer grade fan which, coupled
with the unique grill with optimised air diffuser leads to extremely
even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is
controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in
two reservoirs in the base …

More about humidity levels that eggs require at their different stages, and how to regulate it.


Egg Handling

To accommodate eggs of different sizes the Octagon 20 Eco’s removable egg tray is supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and so maximise the number of eggs that can be held. Eggs as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated and a capacity guide for a range of popular species is given in the specification table. Eggs are turned during incubation as the whole incubator is rocked from side to side – hence the Octagonal cabinet ends. This can be done manually at least twice each day or turning is performed automatically if the incubator is used with the optional Autoturn Cradle which turns the eggs hourly.


All Octagon incubators are fully guaranteed and will be repaired or replaced if a fault should arise within the guarantee period. However, the seller will not be responsible for loss of eggs in the event of failure, however caused, and the user is advised to arrange his own insurance cover where loss of power, mechanical or electrical failure might result in unacceptable losses.
