    We're making an incubator out of a 30 quart styrofoam ice chest. How many eggs do you think that would hold with the light bulb and other stuff?

    How many square inches is the base?

    Where will the water tubs for humidity sit?

    Will it have a fan?

    I'm not sure. We're getting in tomorrow so I googled one and it says its 17" x 12" x 14-3/8"
    The tubs of water will sit in the bottom part of it. There will be a firm wire shelf above it for the eggs to sit on.
    Yes it'll have a fan somewhere on one of the sides
