A rather whimsical egg cup shaped like a chick.

I looked at the existing egg cup designs on Thingiverse and rather liked http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7834 by bpijls. So I set out to design something similar for chicken eggs.

This model holds eggs that are 42-46mm diameter. To fit larger eggs, you can either scale the .stl model or edit the parts directly in Tinkercad https://tinkercad.com/things/hvw1rSKFOVa


The overhang at the base of the cup can be difficult to print.

I succeeded to print with:
• 0.35 layer height
• 4 perimeter shells
• 35% infill using a concentric pattern
• switching the cooling fan on only after the first 20 layers
• no supports (but you might need them)

Oh, and be very gentle removing the cup from the build platform, many chick feet have been harmed in the making of this thing.

legs too weak, and size too big
(unless your eggs are extra extra extra extra large)

Unfortunately the legs are too fragile. They easily break.

Haha....I love the way you imply I made mine specifically for rabbit eggs

All chocolate eggs come from bunnies - don't they? ;)
