    I don't know if there are variations in quail cartons, but the ones that I receive button quail and valley quail eggs in are WAY too small for even a serama egg. I have D'uccles and silkies and just use the regular carton. If you feel that they move around too much, just wad up some paper towel and line the bottom of each egg cup. Also, eggcartons.com has a bunch of neat products that may give you some more options
