    I purchased a 15 pack of cardboard quail egg trays from GQFMG. I am disappointed that my Coturnix eggs are too large to fit in it. My quails are laying some jumbo eggs right now and I can't seem to find anything to keep them in. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to make the eggs fit better in the cardboard trays?

    I also picked up a 100 pack of clear quail egg cartons only to find out that they do not snap shut! I guess I will have to go to the store and grab a few packs of rubber bands to keep them shut.

    I guess it would be alright if you like you eggs scrambled. [​IMG]

    GQF sells chukar egg flats, those fit the coturnix eggs. I use the clear plastic 10-count egg cartons from GQF for shipping.
