How many full size eggs can a bantie sit on?
Depends on the breed and size of the hen. Maybe 2-3. What breed of bantam are you thinking about? What breed will the eggs be? My silkie can sit on about 4 "normal" chicken eggs. Try to put several eggs under your broody. Wait about an hour and see how many she was able to keep warm. If you wanna be careful, try to hatch one or two eggs less then she can keep warm, unless only two fit under her.
