    Wasnt sure where to put this, sorry mods


    Does anyone have a sign set outside on the porch for eggs? Like eggs that you have ordered from other people?

    Im thinkng about placing a sign on my porch for the post guy about my eggs. I have a... wooden platform thingy that They could place the box on.

    Any ideas? I just dont want my packages manhandled [​IMG]

    my PO suggested having the seller put your phone number on the package so they can call me when the eggs come in, that way they arent hauling them on th back of a hot truck all the way to my house. my other suggestion is to yes, leave them a note in your box or somewhere where they will get it Before the eggs arrive. just a nice letter adressed to po delivery guy or gal. i ve never had one mind special requests for packages.

    I know my PO well. We pick our mail up daily.
    But I see no problem with making a sign weather it be permanent or one you can hang occasionally.
    Less chance of the elements blowing or soaking a hand written note, and repetitively rewriting the same information.

    if your looking for suggestions on wording. I would start it out something like:

    Expecting Again. or Chicks to arrive soon.

    Anyway I'm not the best at this kind of thing.
    But I think it's a wonderful IDEA.
