    When I decided to get ducks, my family started collecting egg cartons.

    Today I put a dozen duck eggs into one of those paper mache cartons and the lid wouldn't close even halfway. The eggs were crammed into those little cups with their sides pressed together.

    I guess I need to find someone local with chickens and give all those egg cartons away. It's a good thing I took advantage of a sale to buy an entire case of duck egg cartons. The eggs fit in those.

    Yeah, I find my duck eggs aren't so much bigger as they are rotund. Most of my ducks lay a short fat egg, almost like laying an oversized gold ball. My duck eggs won't even fit in the carton to begin with, never-the-less let the lid close.
