Default Is a 5 cubic ft. chest freezer too small for 2 cornies?

I tried to search for the answer but it seems most of the keezers start around 7.2 cubic ft. and go up from there.

I was wondering if I would be able to fit 2 cornies in a 5 cubic ft. freezer. Space is limited and the foot print of this freezer is small.

Thanks in advance for any information.

The best way to check is to actually try to fit 2 inside it. Or if you can't do that, look at the dimensions and do the math. It's really hard to day based of cubic feet because that doesn't give you any idea on how tall, wide or deep it is.

If you get the right one you might be able to fit three with a big enough collar.
