    I'm looking at trying to hatch out some duck eggs this spring. Is there really a huge difference in these two incubators?
    The Brisi is way more money.
    Thanks

    I just bought a 10 hen egg sized Magicfly and it is really nice and easy to use. I bought it based off of Appalachia's Homestead youtube channel and her experience with it. It fits 9 eggs (cayuga and khaki campbell sized). It holds the temp perfect and it is easy to get the water in with no spilling.

    This is my first time ever incubating eggs and I am already having what I think is good success with it. My drake was hurt, so I needed to check his fertility. Out of the 9 eggs, two weren't fertile. I lost 2 and 5 look like they are doing well.

    The only thing I didn't like about it is that the instructions were obviously translated from another language and parts were hard to read because of that. But, with a little reading from here and it was no problem to figure out what they were saying.... I think they even translated droppings as (sh!t)...it was funny to read.

    Hope that helps!
