    I've been looking online for egg cartons for my coturnix, and I'm overwhelmed. Who's the cheapest and the best? I don't need anywhere near 100, but if that's the best deal, I'll just have to store them somewhere!

    That place is expensive, check out GQF manufacturing. That's where I get mine, and they average out to about $.25 per carton.

    I live in GA. and even with tax. GQF is hands down cheeper than anyone calling themselves (eggcarton) anything. Sponsor or not.

    I may get into trouble for saying this, but "Do the Math!"

    I ended up ordering some from Randall Burkey. It came to about $25 for 50, including shipping. It cost as much in shipping as it did for the actual cartons! Hopefully they'll last a long time.

    Yeah, shipping is a pain. I usually order something else when I order cartons, and is probably why I have an extra 4 dozen pop bottle water thingies.

    I got my cartons in the mail today. They're so tiny! One question, though. How do you get them to stay shut? They don't appear to have any closure system. Tape? Staple?
