    I've used aprons, baskets, bowls... always end up with a cracked egg though. What do you use?

    I use my pockets, sometimes my shorts almost get pulled down by the weight, and occasionally a dog knocks me in the pocket, than there some swearing and laundry to do.

    I use a 1 quart red plastic bucket. It was my daughters idea. It was one of her buckets for building sand castles at the beach. Been using it for over a year. It has a crack down one side that we taped up. Need to find a replacement soon.

    My hands.
    Don't have enough production to justify an egg basket.

    A small plastic bucket should be fine, how many eggs are you stacking in at once? Be gentle & you shouldnt get cracked eggs unless you;ve got thin shells.
