Whether building your first chicken coop or years into a successful partnership with chickens at home, a reliable egg basket is a must-have. Whatever Little House on the Prairie may lead you to believe, you can't just fill your apron with eggs and expect not to drop a few between coop and house. Egg baskets are engineered to protect eggs. You can wash the eggs right in the container and leave them in there to dry until you're ready to use them. And if you're a real city slicker who never has and never will collect eggs, use one of these cute baskets for storing store-bought eggs and produce in your fridge.
