    I'm getting quail and I'm not really sure what to store the eggs in once they're laying.... ? Any suggestions?

    How many quail? Once they start laying, if you've got some number, you'll soon be up to your neck in eggs! A friend who raised quail would fill small shoeboxes with them, just laid in carefully. (And I sometimes got to take a shoebox home!)

    I'd start by filling regular egg cartons, just putting three per egg depression. Then see how fast they fill up.

    I found some of the fiber cartons on eBay for a fair price, and I can store 50 of them upright in them. [​IMG] 2-3 to a regular egg carton is good, too. What do you plan on doing with the eggs?
