    Lightbulb How do you transport eggs?

    I use the cheep plastic egg cartons for back packers but the things do not fit the eggs correctly.

    Then I saw one a carton that is long, but no know how good it is. And wish I could find hard cardboard that would work.

    Are you bringing eggs home from the store? If so, the thread link is the answer.

    However, if you are taking eggs from your home (where you have chickens) and transporting them somewhere else such as to work to sell, well, a loooong time ago they used to pack them in straw!

    This is one kind that breaks easy; I had this for only a couple months. And you can see the hinges broke.

    Also the eggs break if I do not put the pointy side down. They just do not fit.

    The disposable (intended to be so but smart people like us re-use them) fiber cartons are the best out there. Just wrap them with a few rubber bands or tape to keep them closed. They work better then the plastic cartons that are designed to be re-used.

    Eggs are surprisingly easy to carry. You can even bungie the carton to your rack. You can't do that with bread without crushing it.

    When I go to the grocery store, I carry two pannier grocery bags in a messenger bag. When I check out, I have the groceries packed into the pannier bags except for eggs and anything else that might break, and I put those items in the now-empty messenger bag. I am the shock absorber.

    I just bring the chicken home

    Actually when I still was hauling eggs home from the store, I would leave them in the carton and place them near the top of the load in a pannier. I would put them in their own plastic bag just in case, but don't recall every breaking any on the trip home, and I live at the end of a 1/4 mile long dirt road.

    buying eggs from the store is no problem
    either in a bag with the other groceries or on top of the other objects in the basket
    but if you are picking up fresh eggs from someone who does not run a business then you might need to improvise something

    I carried 10 eggs in a standard cardboard carton half way across Europe in a pannier on a bike that went on trains, on rough trails and over various gutter crossings. No broken eggs, no problem.

    Eggs are remarkably resilient in a pannier or handlebar bag and even a backpack. I've carried them many times.

    Do not put them in your 7 year old's trunk rack. Especially if he has a penchant for going down curbs bike. My experience with that is a 1 in 3 egg survival rate.

    I've not had an issue in my backpack, though.
