    I have been carrying my eggs from the coop to the house in multiple trips, wrapped in the edge of my shirt, or in a feed scoop, and now that my turkeys are laying I have decided to upgrade to a real egg basket. Hopefully one that looks nice and can sit on my counter with my colorful variety of eggs, but is still functional and can hold a good amount so that I don't have to make multiple trips. Show off photos of your egg baskets for ideas!

    Fun idea. I don't get eggs yet, but was thinking about this just the other day.

    I usually use a 1 or 2 gallon bucket to collect eggs. It may not be the most good looking thing, but it works. Basket of various kinds also work well.

    I bet you have lots of eggs for a two gallon bucket! That basket is beautiful, I may go that route for aesthetics.

    Awesome, and I bet if you did have an egg leak it'd go through the metal bars and be easy to clean up too.
