    Does anybody know where I can find some quail egg cartons that are good for shipping at a reasonable price? I already have some paper ones that I bought off ebay, but I am shipping one of the last two tomorrow. So now I need more at a good price so I won't have to charge more for shipping. Thanks:D

    Ggqmfq.com has the plastic ones i use, I just have to pad them a little bit and secure with a rubber band, so they dont jostle during shipment, and to close them, as they have no snapping latch. There are trifold egg cartons on eggcartons.com, which would be more secure, but are a whole lot more expensive than the others.

    Do you think the paper ones would be softer for shipping? I have some huge eggs that are hard to get in the paper cartons so do you think they will fit in the plastic?

    Quote:I guess I wouldn't know, as I've never used the paper kind. However, I always stuff a sheet of tissue in the carton to hold them in place. The big ones it would hold securely, the small ones with the paper it would hold securely. The good thing about plastic is it stretches, so you will be able to fit the big ones in.

    Quote:NO THEY WILL NOT FIT IN PLASTIC IF LARGE. UNFORTUNATELY THE LARGE ONES REALLY NEED THE CHUKAR FLATS... BUT THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOO EXPENSIVE AND I CANT FIND A REASONABLE DEAL ON THEM ANYWHERE. I USE THE PAPER FLATS AS THEY SEEM TO DO A WAY BETTER JOB THAN THE PLASTIC
