    Hello from Kansas, Forgotten Times, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community!
    Here's some old threads where obtaining egg cartons is discussed: https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=egg+cartons
    Also, don't know where you are located but here's a link that has some state's egg selling regulations posted:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...eggs-for-consumption-in-your-state-country/10
    And here's a link to some old threads that discuss tips for selling eggs.
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=egg+selling+tips
    From my experience, unless you are large scale you won't turn much of a profit....but selling a few dozen a week takes the edge off the old feed bill. And most BYCers are not in it to make money as much as having tasting eggs and enjoying our backyard flocks.
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! [​IMG]

    I'm sorry I can't really share links, since I don't really sell my eggs or know anything about it. But, welcome to BYC! I hope you like it here and learn lots about chickens!

    G’Day from down under Forgotten Times [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some great links from redsoxs, I will just wish you and your flock all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    The Search box located at the top left hand of every screen is very helpful in finding information.

    Good luck finding the egg cartons and thanks for joining us!
