    ow, you can measure it by putting the eggs inside it, they need no much space to use. just 2 cm per eggs to let the chick "move" when hatched only.

    It depends on how you set them in there. I can easily get about a dozen bantam duck eggs in half of it (the other half I have additional water containers), so I would say probably upwards of 30 bantam chicken eggs.

    it seems like I might've been able to get 8 per row if they were set in there just right and all bantam-size, making a little zig-zag. But now I can't remember, since my last batch had some regular size eggs too. Maybe with all bantam-size it would fit an extra row, and it that case it would fit at least 35. let us know when you find out!
