Egg cartons?

Post by shelly on Sun Sep 07, 2008 9:03 pm

Hi All,
I'm New to quails, mine seem to be laying well so can anyone suggest the cheapest way of obtaining Quail egg boxes?
How much would you advise me to sell them for?
I have had free range hens for years and sell mine to wrok collegues etc for 1 half Doz, they are REAL free range and the eggs are HUGE. But I have no idea what to charge for Quail?
Many Thanks!!!!

I charge a pound a dozen to friends. The cheapest way of getting egg boxes is order in bulk, I ordered 100 and they were still about 18p each. I normally ask for people to give them back as they're plastic, and most people do since we don't have plastic recycling around here..

Wow, 13.00 for 30 egg boxes? What a rip off.

I get mine from Solway Feeders.

How many boxes do you need Shelly? ... I might be able to help you out with some Smile
