    We have those cartons in the closet, let me go see how the chicken eggs fit inside.

    They fit, don't knock into each other, but have empty space above allowing them to move around.

    You are welcome, the eggs are EE, RIR and maybe an Ameracuana for size.

    It would be economical. You could put 2 eggs in each compartment.

    It might work for shipped eggs, because there would be room in each cell for some padding around the egg.

    If you search around their web site, they often offer seconds in different sizes. I bought their seconds in duck/turkey size and when I did, they also had 12 cell seconds in chicken size.

    The cartons look really good. I was worried, but there is nothing at all wrong with them.

    The goose cartons won't really work, because the point of the carton is to hold the egg so it doesn't bounce around. The eggs would be flopping all over the place in those cartons.
