    Hello,
    We sell our eggs and this year we got a lot of banties, polish and smaller chickens that will lay smaller eggs.
    Is there such thing as bantam egg cartons or smaller egg cartons that will fit bantam and polish sized eggs? And, if so, where can you get them? I know quail egg cartons exsist but I don't know if they would fit bantam eggs...

    Any help is appreciated!

    Have you seen the egg shipping foam. I got some quail eggs in it. Very nice. If I get into shipping more I will get some. They have it in like 3 sizes. Not too bad of a price. Just search for egg shipping foam. A couple of different sites come up.

    Thanks, Kycowgirlchick!
    When I said selling eggs I meant for eating (I assumed you thought I mean selling firtal eggs for incubation), sorry for the confusion! But I could see how those could work for selling eggs for eating, too... hmmm...
    Thanks again for your help!

    Oh ok. Do you live close to a little store that has a restaurant in it. Ask them to save you some eggs cartons. You can also buy them online. Everything is available online. [​IMG]

    Quote:Okay, thanks! We have a lot of egg cartons, I'm just worried that the banty eggs might wobble around and break in a normal sized egg carton but maybe we could put something in it to stop it from wobbling. [​IMG]
    Thanks for your help!

    Quote:Thanks for the link! I'm pretty sure bantam eggs are a bit bigger then quail eggs, at least the quail eggs I've seen, but maybe quail eggs come in different sizes (big quail eggs, small quail eggs??). Thanks!
