Egg cartons for duck eggs?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Do they make these? Where can I find some?

My duck eggs are too big to fit in ordinary cartons.

http://www.eggcartons.com/Seconds-Glass-Clear-6-Egg-Duck_Turkey-Egg-Carton-w_Label/productinfo/FHP-6D-S/  has duck egg cartons with labels
http://www.eggcartons.com/Seconds-Glass-Clear-6-Egg-Duck_Turkey-Egg-w_No-Label/productinfo/FHPBL-6D-S/ and without labels.
They also have goose egg cartons http://www.eggcartons.com/Glass-Clear-6-Egg-Goose-Egg-Cartons-w_Label/productinfo/FHP-6G/  I haven't tried any of them so I can't say as to how good they are but if you do get some please tell us if they work!

I've tried their foam and their plastic cartons.  I like the foam better only because it's easier to get the eggs in and out of them. The plastic are heavy duty enough but for some reason it's harder to get eggs out of them...may be deeper or the plastic between them comes up higher?

They have great service and prompt shipping!

There are also a couple BYCers that make labels you can put on your cartons to personalize them.

http://www.customeggcartonlabels.com/  is one of them. ADozenGirlz is her screen name on here.

AngelzFyre can you say if the foam are the same size as the plastic? And are the jumbo foam cartons you got about the same size as the jumbo cartons at a store? I have noticed that foam cartons are more flexible then the hard plastic. That in itself can be a plus or a minus depending on the eggs your trying to fit in. Just trying to get an idea of what to order. Thanks

I think I'll try these foam ones and see how they work, it looks like they'll work for jumbo chicken eggs aswell.

I get jumbo paper cartons from eggcartons.com.  Even the Extra Large seem too small for most of the eggs.

Please consider adopting rescued ducks.

They were the same size, but like another poster said, the foam is more forgiving and will accomodate the eggs easier.
I put all my eggs pointy side down.
I've had the paper cartons before and same problem with them as the plastic, they just seem harder to get the eggs out of. They also got dirtier faster from people handling them--and you cannot wash them without damaging them.  Course it could just be meeeee and my fumble fingers that can't get the eggs out of the both of em! LOL

Eggcartons.com has the best size selection and prices.  But even Jumbo is tough to close with my duck eggs.  For my Muscovy eggs I use their Turkey egg cartons.
