    eggboxes.com usually has free shipping on their cartons, so they are cheaper, I like eggcartons.com better though, they are higher since you have to pay for shipping but they have a better variety.

    Try posting on your local Craigslist asking for free ones.

    If you like foam, I like Dolco. The jumbo ones are roomy enough for all but the hugest of my duck eggs.

    We have zillions of egg cartons that we got from folks on Freecycle.org, but even the extra large arent really big enough for my duck eggs. LOL

    If you are going to sell your eggs at the feedstore, then you probably should buy new cartons.
