    No, I'm not mad at egg cartons, [​IMG]

    I was however wondering if there is any purpose for having a vent in the egg cartons:

    With Vent

    Without Vent

    Which of these do you think would be the better quality egg carton?

    "Holes in the top allow eggs to breathe"

    That's pretty vague! But the air sac gets bigger as eggs get older, so it might be to allow for that air exchange. I'd go by price and shipping cost. [​IMG]

    I like the vents, that way the egg colors show through.

    I bought 200 plain foam cartons for 17.00 awhile back, no vents. I thought that was a good price.

    I have to get ready for work. I work the graveyard shift. I don't remember but you could also buy mis-printed ones for even cheaper. I'll see if there is an address on the box they shipped in.
