    Khaki Campbells are starting to lay soon. Will a jumbo chicken egg carton hold these eggs when they reach full size? Thanks

    My Khaki eggs fit in a jumbo carton.

    This is good to know since I wasn't sure if I had a size in stock that would fit my ducks eggs when they start laying.

    My Khaki and Welsh Harlequin eggs fit in a jumbo carton, my Mallard lays a small/medium egg, and every once in awhile my Cayuga lays an egg so big the jumbo carton won't close over it. Compared to chicken eggs, these eggs are monstrous!

    Thanks Chicken Toes! Wish they would hurry up and lay. They are 18 1/2 weeks old and I can't wait.

    Most of my swedish's eggs can fit in a jumbo egg carton but it is very very close. I regularly end up taping the cartons closed when I give them to someone.
