Actually I found some on Eggcartons.com but now cant decide on the 6 or 12 egg carton.. I like the six because of the clear packaging...

I've always had a hard time finding egg cartons too - here's why:

Try finding a carton that will hold that egg. I get a few of these double-yolkers every year - I just had to share.

Those are DUCK EGGS so no poor chicken! I would look for JUMBO grade cartons, My customers liked the cardboard ones that could be broken in half because they didn't need a whole dozen. There were no half dozen cartons available then.

My bad I only have Pekins and chickens so just assumed .. but still thats a big darn egg.. I actually found some plastic ones for just a little more then the Jumbo cartons.. I tried a store bought jumbo carton and they didnt quite fit.. Thanks for the suggestions though...

You're talking about eating eggs, not hatching eggs, right?
I've heard of people who can't get people to try their duck eggs for free, people who sell them at $3 a dozen, and even people that sell them for $15 a dozen to restaurants!

$3 - $4 a dozen seems to be the average.

I fall into the "I can't even give them away" category. There's just no market for them here.

I charge $2.50 for a half dozen, as my eggs are all jumbo sized. I don't sell a lot of duck eggs, but just keep those for my own use, as the chicken eggs usually go like hotcakes.
