    I'd imagine a lot of you package your eggs up and either give them
    away, or sell them.... or otherwise pass them on and "share the bounty",
    sort of speak. I'm curious as to what you use to package the eggs.... do
    you purchase egg containers, reuse existing containers. Does it matter
    what you use? Thanks.

    Do you mean cartons?

    I use a mix of used cartons that friends and neighbors give me and some that I have bought on sale. Depends on what state you live in as to whether its necessary to use new cartons or not and what's written on the cartons.

    I don't waste cartons for the small pullet eggs that I often give away if they are piling up. I just call a neighbor, tell them I have free eggs and to bring a bowl.

    We buy cartons from TSC.... Also, we reuse cartons that we have had before chickens. [​IMG]

    You can also get racks for the eggs. You can keep the rack on your table and even in the fridge. [​IMG]

    I was using old plastic cartons until I saw these cool round cartons for 6, and then I couldn't help myself; I designed a label. I have way too much time for all this.

    People like them, and 6 is easier for me to part with than 12.
