    So my chickens and ducks are almost to laying age so, I sit down to make my normal “eggs for sale sign” and I can’t think of any darn ways to make it work? Like what if I’m sold out? Or if chicken eggs are available but not ducks or vice versa. Lol. Anyone have any ideas?


    Much appreciated- Ryan.

    Maybe you make a chicken eggs sign and then a duck egg sign? You could make a reverseable sold out/in stock part at the bottom?

    A sign with sliding panels that show which type and availability shouldn't be too hard to build. Like the sliding open/closed sign on some business doors.

    I work in the printing business and can tell you those signs are not cheap. A better option would be to make a seperate sign that says SOLD OUT and attach velcro to it so you can just put it in place. Also...set it up yourself whatever size you want it to be in publisher or powerpoint. Then make a PDF file before submitting to your printer. Often times they charge a design or set up fee if you dont provide a file or it isnt set up correctly

    What would be cool would be a wooden sign that says "Eggs for sell"
    Then underneath the lettering (kinda like how they did on old baseball signs), mount some little hooks and make little chalkboard signs that can hang on them.
    You will be able to write duck or chicken eggs and even a price if wanted.
    Then you could take them down or flip them over when your out.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Oooh. Good idea. But what if it rains? I would just do corrugated with vinyl lettering. Never thought about a chalkboard

    That's true! Didn't think about rainy weather! Vinyl sticks to just about anything so that would be easy to do!
    Or even hand paint the signs if OP choses to do it all wood.

    Corregated plastic is usually a very affordable option. You can usually also ask for metal stakes to go with them and they are usually free depending on the company.

    I was thinking more of a diy, plywood and moulding. I've made similar signs for people in my area total cost about $40-80 depending on size and material.
