    Has anyone ever designed some sort of box that opens when money is put in it in their front yard? I want a simple way to sell eggs.

    Like those toy vending machines that has little prizes in the bubble or a snack machine that holds cartons? Either way don't sound simpler than 1)take money 2)give eggs.

    I've watching people bolt a cash box to a board here and sell sweet corn off of it. But I have a feeling my eggs will just get stolen lol

    I've looked at vending machines for a different project and they don't come cheap. What about just a locking box that customers can pick up the eggs and leave the money in? Unless you have a lot of chickens then you wont have more than a few dozen for sale at a time would you?

    PS. Welcome to backyard chickens

    Thanks. That's probably my best option.

    I have several friends who put eggs out in a cooler with a cash box. It's on the honor system and no one has gotten burned yet Probably a lot simpler than spending a lot of money for a vending machine.
    In the summer people also set up stands with produce the same way.
