    After years of using old egg cartons that folks have saved for us, we are getting ready to order some tri-fold plastic egg cartons so we can use our own custom labels on them (we will print them on an ink jet printer and then cut them out). I used to buy blank paper cartons and use a rubber stamp on them, but this would be a step up from that. We plan to design a nice label with a photo of our chickens and some Bible verses. It's kind of like the way that some folks design nice labels to go on their homemade preserves to be given away to friends and family.

    Does anyone here have their own egg carton labels that they would like to show off? I would sure like to see photos of them. Also, any thoughts on the different types of egg cartons would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

    Are there egg cartons for Serama eggs?. Their eggs are itty-bitty but I'm sure someone eats the eggs. They would be a great novelty item to sell.

    Quote:I have found cartons for quail eggs - is that about the same size?

    I was told it takes 5 Serama eggs to equal about one large chicken egg. Seramas are about half the size (sometimes smaller) than the banties. I'm unfamiliar with quail eggs but Seramas are about the size of a thimble.
