    I have 5 red sex links. One of them lays a larger than JUMBO size egg everyday. It will "fit" in the jumbo egg carton, but I can't put two of them side by side in the carton.
    Any recommendations on what egg cartons would be good to purchase. The other 4 lay jumbo sized eggs.

    Thanks.

    Maybe you need to get the cartons that hold 24 eggs and just put 12.

    We have been using the egg flats that hold 30 eggs. We are placing an egg in every one slot.
    They are new layers (since August). Will be interesting to see how big the eggs will be after they molt next fall. [​IMG]

    Seems like someone should make larger and smaller egg cartons- probably a market for these.

    Have you found cartons that fit the huge eggs the sex links lay? I can't!

    I don't know the dimensions though [​IMG]
    I am sure if you call they'd be happy to tell you.
