Borotto or Brinsea !?!?

Can anyone give me a good recommendation. Brinsea Maxi Advance or Brotto Real 24 ?
Going to use it for Quails and Call ducks.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks Andrew.

Andrew, of the two I only used a Brinsea, but would HIGHLY recommend it. It's a great "set and forget" incubator, holds temp and humidity very well and I had excellent hatches in the one I had.

Brinsea plain and simple,easy to use,dependable,good warranty and replacement parts service.
Mine is ten years on the go this year and good as new.

Both Brinsea and Borotto are great incubators. For quail the Borotto incubators are better value as they will hold 4 times the amount of chicken eggs without having to change or buy any extra egg trays.
A Sirio humidity pump can be added to the Borotto for €105 if needed.
Parts are readily available for both makes of incubator.
2 year warranty on Borotto and 3 on Brinsea providing you register. If you don’t register Brinsea you only get 1 year warranty.
Both give little trouble. Most issues with incubators arise from being put away wet or stored damp resulting in electrical faults not covered by warranty.
When you have finished using your incubator wash it, dry it and run it for 24 hours to dry totally. Store in a box in a dry place.
