I am getting enough eggs from my four hens that I am starting to sell them. The problem I have is the eggs are too large fo th egg cartons I have. Does anyone sell larger egg cartons for turkey eggs?

eggcartons.com sells cartons for the jumbo eggs (chicken), even my biggest chicken eggs fit in them.  Haven't tried turkeys eggs, and my girls aren't laying yet so can't say for sure but I think they would fit.  http://www.eggcartons.com/Polystyrene-Jumbo-White-Foam-Egg-Carton-Blank/productinfo/EGFJBL-WH/

to add that I sometimes get chicken eggs that won't fit in a normal carton so I had to use a rubberband to hold the carton closed.  They fit in these with room to spare.

I have never heard of turkey eggs for consumption, why is that?  Do they taste like chicken eggs but larger?  I wish I had more land to have turkeys also.  Can turkeys and chickens range and be housed together?

An egg is an egg. Not much difference, in my opinion between a turkey egg and a chicken egg. As for housing with chickens....yes and no. Depends on who you ask. I have no issuse with my turkeys being with my chickens.

The only difference I've noticed is that the membrane on the turkey egg is much harder to break.  You can almost peel the shell off without breaking the membrane.

I have ate chicken ,turkey,peafowl,pheasant,quail, and chukar eggs all about the same....now waterfowl eggs don't taste the same.

Are you asking for shipping purposes?  If so I have taken an egg carton and cut it in half for 6 eggs. Then cut the tops off and discarded them. Using other half of bottom carton for a top.
Place the eggs inside and tape top and bottom together.
There is a gap between but it works.  Then bubble wrap as usual for shipping.

No, just ease of carry. My wife sells the eggs to her coworkers and they don't fit well in a regular egg carton. I will try eggcartons.com and see if they are any better.
