    I
    priced up to 40 of these and they were $3.85 (for 10) with $8.95 shipping (for 40). I didn't need more than that, so I don't know how many would have the $8.95 shipping. But you can't beat that price, $3.85 for 10 quail egg flats???

    These are the small ones, the ones used for buttons and bobwhites. Coturnix eggs will NOT fit in these!

    I buy 100 of the chuker flats...which is what one really wants if you are shipping coturnix eggs, and they are less than $1.00 a piece when purchased 100 or more.

    Them little quail flats would be fine for buttons though.

    I use the ones from GQF for quail alot like those. Drill holes at the peaks(air flow) use them to set quail eggs in the incubator , can double stack, can set 1200 eggs in a sportsman.

    You can turn the chukar flats over and get a smaller carton, but the "Quail flats" are fine for buttons, not much else. I have about 10 of the quail flats from GQF. PM me here or on facebook, and I'll let you have them for a steal.
