    Photos please! I am in the market for an egg basket, and would like to see what's out there. I am especially interested in pics of round, wire baskets, where you got yours and what you paid for it. Thanks!

    I saw the older thread, but there were very few photos, so I'm asking anew [​IMG]

    Here is mine. I bought it about 25 years ago, long before I had chickens. It has stored onions, potatoes, whatever was on my counter. It just seemed wrong to use it for anything but eggs once the chickens arrived.

    Quote:Cool, thanks for posting the pic. I have one very similar, but much smaller. Mine would only hold about 4 eggs.

    I have an old wire basket that is just round, not chicken shaped. It's more than big enough for my small flock of 5 laying ducks and 12 laying hens. It has a nice weathered wooden handle. I got it from Ebay for very little money.
