Cheap quail egg flats

post #1 of 7

I
priced up to 40 of these and they were $3.85 (for 10) with $8.95 shipping (for 40). I didn't need more than that, so I don't know how many would have the $8.95 shipping. But you can't beat that price, $3.85 for 10 quail egg flats???

These are the small ones, the ones used for buttons and bobwhites. Coturnix eggs will NOT fit in these!

I love Flemings, I think I'll order these for collecting and to put in the bator. http://www.flemingoutdoors.com/plastic-partridge-egg-trays---chuck-80-st.html

I buy 100 of the chuker flats...which is what one really wants if you are shipping coturnix eggs, and they are less than $1.00 a piece when purchased 100 or more.

Them little quail flats would be fine for buttons though.

This is for button and/or bobwhite eggs, which is why the title says 'quail' flats and not 'chukar' flats. The chukar flats are too big for button eggs.

And also why I said this in the first post:

I just use the paper chukar flats for collecting, my eggs go in the auto-turner so no need for special racks there....at least until I make a bigger bator tongue

I use the ones from GQF for quail alot like those.  Drill holes at the peaks(air flow) use them to set quail eggs in the incubator , can double stack, can set 1200 eggs in a sportsman.

Yes Mam wink

You can turn the chukar flats over and get a smaller carton, but the "Quail flats" are fine for buttons, not much else. I have about 10 of the quail flats from GQF. PM me here or on facebook, and I'll let you have them for a steal.
