    Not sure where exactly to post this question, but does anyone make bantam egg cartons? I've seen quail egg cartons, but those are too small for bantam eggs, right?

    www.eggcartons.com might have some. I ordered cartons from them year before last, they were reasonably priced and arrived really fast!

    I called 7 places today, and e-mailed another 2. Nobody that I talked with has bantam-sized egg cartons. There are boxes for collecting or shipping eggs (including cutler, fleming and eggcartons.com), but nothing for those of us who'd like to sell the eggs.

    My quail egg cartons won't work. Bantam eggs are larger than a quail egg and smaller than a small chicken egg.

    I guess I could use regular egg cartons but my bantam eggs kinda roll around in there. I would like the eggs to fit snugly to minimize the possibility of breakage.

    Anybody else have any ideas?

    And it turns out those egg cartons aren't even sized for Bantams. They sent standard sized cartons.

    Hello to those on this thread. I know it has been a while since anyone posted on it but I wanted to let those interested know that I have recently set up a website selling Bantam size egg boxes in the UK. I designed them myself and had them manufactured as I got fed up of my little eggs looking out of sorts in standard egg boxes!! Please take a look at my site www.thebantambox.co.uk I hope you all like it and of course any orders would be more than welcomed :)
